I have tons of UFO’s (unfinished objects) in my studio space. I need to either get rid of some or do something with them to make them more functional.
This is a piece of felt that has been printed with thickened dye and then free motion machine stitched. It’s been hanging around for more than a year. I thought about framing it but decided against that.
So I had this tea tin that it wrapped around and fit perfectly.
Here it is getting ready to stitch. I used safety pins to hold it together and then used two needles to lace up the back. I can easily remove the stitching if I want to use the felt for something else.
Here it is after stitching. It’s a bit wonky but the edges weren’t even and I wasn’t really worrying about being straight.
And here’s the tea tin in my kitchen, all finished and looking pretty 🙂
Do you have any UFO’s that you need to complete? Show us some of your unfinished projects over on the forum. Maybe we’ll be able to give you some ideas of getting it finished or made into something useful.
