I've made "wings" of two hangars placed handles together and duck-taped. Then you cover the hangar part with some pretty cloth and make shoulder straps.

Making a back of the door tidy, sort of like a peg bag but longer.
Make pockets for shoes or toys etc.

If you hang it on top of a door, then it can't slam shut.

Oh and if no-one hasn't mentioned it yet: a funky TV aerial, which led me to thinking, would be useful if you're trying to make a teletubby costume!

Sorry Pol. I didn't come up wth that one. it is adocumented interrogation technique used by the armed forces of more than one nation with 'united' in the title.

How about "making huge bubbles in the air with strong detergent"... that's jollier.

Grand total of 29 in total for Feb (although there aren't as many days)...

Not quite as good as the 34 for clothes pegs...

I will keep this thread open, but look at next months challenge...
