The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. ~Pierre Corneille
I am absolutely thrilled to have a short essay and picture published in the latest issue of Uppercase Magazine. This call for submissions was for all artists who revel in the use of scraps, bits, pieces and left-overs! I knew right away that I would submit my “Auntie Hangers” to share. I use every last bit of scrap yarn I have, and these are the perfect stash busters. I call them Auntie Hangers because I received my first crocheted hangers as an unexpected gift from my great-aunt, Helen. In fact, you can read the whole story if you hurry and order your copy of Uppercase today! It is hands-down my favorite magazine full of inspiration for anyone who loves to live a creative life.
In fact, making these hangers is also one of my favorite gift ideas. Who doesn’t love a pretty, soft hanger on which to hang a special dress or blouse?
I am in love with this latest issue because it features the beauty of feed-sack cloth its many uses “once upon a time.” Each issue of the magazine has a small square of actual feed- sack cloth attached to the front. It’s these extra-special details that make this magazine such a treasure!
Happy scrapping and Happy Crafting!
