thankyou - found a great way to do these now, after lots of puzzling and logic, so happy to share if someone wants to make one.

the theory i am following is this video with the addition of the top so watch this first

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvKIN6XRPpU

measure your hanger width and add about an inch and half.

You then cut fabric to this width - I manage to get 2 from a 54 inch wide fabric.

So I then cut 3 lengths in inches front and a backing:
10.5
3.75
12.5
total 26.5 so 2 lots add up to 53 and should be ok for the fabric, depending on selvedge.

3/8 seam

on the 10.5 this is the bottom part of the bag, attach the front to the back where it will be the opening - right sides together turn right side out, and top stitch

Lay this piece with the right side to the back right side - make sure patterns are Ok if there is a directional.

Sew along the bottom only

Join the top piece to each other, before turning out do a 1/2 inch hem just a couple of inches along the middle only.

Turn right sides out and top stitch the opening.

Place this piece onto the back right side together and overlap slightly little piece is upper most. make sure everything is level. stick a couple of pins in.

now place the lining on top of sandwich rights sides together, pin/clip

Take your hanger and place at top just under half an inch from the top (if you have a thick hanger you may need to change slightly, and change the hemmed bit you did on the top). draw the shape onto the fabric and this will be your stitch line. In the middle for 1.5 inches you will sew the inside to the outside only

You are now going to sew leaving a turning gap at the bottom of a couple of inches from the bottom

so a little along the bottom, up the side along the curve of the hanger, In the middle for 1.5 inches you will sew the inside to the outside only down the side, and along the bottom a little way.

clip corners and turn inside out. The gap will now just be on the inside of the pocket, sort out all of your corners, and sew gap closed - don't go through to outside fabric.

Wow hope that makes sense - try a little one on some scrap fabric, it ends up with a super neat finish - and machine stitched mainly so really quick.

you could add ric rac, lace - or whatever you fancy. Sew on buttons before closing gap

that's a good idea - mind you my husband does the washing, so not sure he would wear a peg apron
