Mysteries solved & a birthday gift delivered

Thank you to everyone who left comments on my previous post identifying my mystery object as a button hook - how clever you all are - I know who to ask next time I have a mystery to solve! So it is used for buttoning the many tiny buttons on boots/corsets or gloves back at the turn of the 20th century, making it close to 100 years old. I feel very special to have it my possession.
Since I'm on the subject of tools to make dressing a more pleasurable experience (coincidentally!), I have been working on a little gift for my Mum's birthday.
The pattern is 'Dressy Hangers' by Marg Low, the fabrics are 'Darla' by Tanya Whelan.
I really love Marg Low's well-written patterns. She makes beautiful things. Be sure to check out her blog.
Making these hangers could easily become addictive. They require little fabric, and it is lots of fun putting combinations of fabrics together. Thought it would be great to make one for each of my children each year for Christmas, so that by the time they leave home, they will have a cute selection. Hmmm, so many ideas, so little time ... Have a great weekend!
