This instructable describes how to make a personalized wire hanger with a person's name built-in so it's looks cool and stylish in your child's wardrobe ;-).
The original idea is not from me. One day I discovered via the Inhabitots' newsletter to which I'm subscribed to (http://www.inhabitots.com/), someone who was making custom made hangers for baby clothes. I found her profile back on Etsy (see http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28164910).
I loved the idea and thought it was first of all very easy to make but also very unique.
Anyway, as I have a 11 months old baby boy and as we received tons of clothes for him (he even has more clothes than me or my wife), we're constantly lacking hangers, so I've decided to make some for him based on lilafrances' idea from Etsy. Also, a lot of our friends are in their thirties and babies are popping up everywhere, this of course represents quite a budget in baby presents. But now thanks to this marvellous idea I'll have super cool personalized custom handmade presents for all my firends' little ones... = instant karma for me ;-)
As you've guessed by now, my son is named Sean.
This hanger on the picture was my first one, in the meantime, I've improved my "n" and "s".
You can see other hangers on lilafrances' profile (see link above); it'll give you some ideas on how to make the letters.EDIT 04/08
