I have no idea if this is the best place for my request, so my apologies to the moderators if I chose wrong.

I am hoping someone has one of those fancy satin and/or lacy padded hangers in their closet and would be willing to take a few photographs of it for me; color doesn't matter. I'm looking for a picture of just the hanger on a fairly plain background. The picture will be used on a website and will be cropped and shrunk to no more than 200px wide. It's going to be used as a topic picture for handmade apparel so I'm looking for a hanger that is large enough to hang a dress or blouse rather than one made for jewelry.

I've spent the last few hours looking all over the web and can't find an image that I can use (even on the paid stock photo sites) - the only halfway decent pictures I've seen are on sites selling the hangers.

I'm so keeping my fingers crossed that there's a Craftster out there somewhere that has one of these and would be so kind as to help me out.

If this does not work for you PM me.  A padded hanger I found on HGTV, for those of you who are interested.

Your welcome glad I could help. 

FYI-pattern for hangers via Carol Duvall Show, I thought someone might like to make their own for that special outfit.

So glad there's interest in padded hangers...meaning, I am not the only nutty one! 

When I was about 12, I was obsessed with padded hangers.  I really wanted all my clothes on them.  My mother refused to pay for any, because we had perfectly good old wooden hangers and anyways, padded hangers take up too much space.  So, I somehow got my hands on one, and took it apart to figure out how it was made.  Then I drafted a pattern, bought some cheap remnant fabric from the scrap bin at the local fabric shop (Poppy Fabrics, in Oakland, CA, now sadly out of business, I hear), and my mother relented and gave me money to buy some foam padding. 

I think I spent that entire summer making padded hangers in the back yard, trying to sew and use Sun In on my hair at the same time.  Grin  Ah, good times, good times.

Only recently did I threw all those hangers out.  The fabric was so hideous--so 80s!  My god.  And I thought I was high style.  Tee hee.

My hanger obsession still lingers, though.  Just today I made some painted hangers with cute lil' rose waterslide decals.  Shabby Chic-esque.  Which I'm sure will look equally hideous to me in another 15 years!

The more children are valued, the better their values will be.

I would love to see one oh you painted hangers.

I remember whem my mother crocheted around the metal hangers so things would not get a bad crease.

Those where the days now you can buy just about anything.

I have several beautiful padded hangers.

One is light pink velvet

One is soft pastel floral with lace, and trimmed in pink

If you are interested, let me know.
