What a clever idea. A fabric closet safe seems like a misnomer, however having several hangers covered with fabric and one or more with zippered compartments to hold valuables is a great idea. Most closets are stuffed with clothes making this one of those hide-in-plain-sight concealment tricks perfect to safeguard money, keys, jewelry and documents. Nice gift idea too.

Anyone who travels need this today to keep your valueables hidden in the closet in hotel room so it looks like it is just a hanger for clothes. Noone would know the difference or just keep something hung on it. This is so clever. It isnot as easy a project but it will be well worth it. You may have to read over a couple of times. I really love them. I may need to make some for my closet at home and some for gifts. What about you?
