I had originally made the hanger for the Bag Holder doll out of jewelry wire. I thought it would have been strong enough but after a month or two of being twisted this way and that way it failed. I made a new one today out of stainless steel - and was that ever fun to bend! NOT! I really do like this design of hanger though and think I will use it on all my dolls/art projects. She's back up on the wall now and I don't think this will fail any time soon!
