Crochet Hanger Free Pattern by AnnooCrochet Designs
Some historians believe President Thomas Jefferson invented a forerunner of the wooden clothes hanger. However, today's most used hanger, the shoulder-shaped wire hanger, was inspired by a coat hook that was invented in 1869 by O. A. North of New Britain, Connecticut. An employee of the Timberlake Wire and Novelty Company, Albert J. Parkhouse of Jackson, Michigan has also been credited with the invention., as has Christopher Cann in 1876 as an engineering student at Boston University.
Hand Made gifts are so much more personal. A crafty gift shows to the person at the receiving end, that you really care enough about them to spend time creating something special and unique, as unique as they are for you....
