Doorhanger challenge

Here's a door hanger I have made myself for my Craft Room door to hopefully get the message across to my DH not to interrupt whilst I'm working. (Fat chance, he is a bloke after all!)This is also my Competition Entry; details can be found here

I have machine knitted the fabric (the image is a design by Wendy Phillips and is used with her kind permission) and I have added the words to it. The cones of yarn are made by cutting tiny pieces of plastic out and covering them with yarn and then stitching them to the knitting. The 'knitting' in the design I have knitted and also sewn to the design. Having machined the fabric I lightly padded a piece of card with wadding and then covered it with the knitted fabric, neatening the reverse side with felt as shown in second picture.


  1. Like it ! I hope it does the trick.
    Best of luck in the competion.
