"Purple Ribbon Coat Hanger"

This purple ribbon coat hanger is a simple, yet stylish design. It is stretched to fit the coat hanger, making the spaces between the puff stitches more pronounced.

The hanger is first covered with silver paper, which is seen through the stitches.

It is decorated with a small florist’s bow tied around the base of the hook.
