One UFO Done

About five months ago I made a list of the UFO's that I had and I am ashamed to say that there were over twenty of them.Many of them had the stitching finished and only needed to be constructed.
This Sashiko one has been lurking around for about 6 years --I had finished the stitching but I didn't know what to do with it after that.
I didn't need anymore cushions and I didn't want to make it into a wall hanging because I had nowhere that I could hang it so it just sat in a box with the other stuff.
This week I decided to make it into a bag and it is now finished.
The corded handle is made from commercial cord which I zig zagged together and I added a small hand made tassel on one side.




I have another one almost finished--today could be the day.

It looks lovely, dont you have that wonderful sense of achieving something when you finish. Better than sitting back doing nothing!

Well done - you are setting good example!
Yes, my goodness me, what to do with all those stitched pieces.....
A bag is really a good solution.

Your stitching has made such a lovely bag Doreen - it would have been such a shame to waste all your hard work by not doing something with it. Well done - you put the rest of us to shame!

Congratulations, Doreen. It's always good to finish another project. Looking forward to seeing the next one.

I'm afraid to go counting my UFO's! (I think I'll keep it a secret from myself.) lol
Nice bag you've created.

Micki said...

Nicely done! I have way too many UFO's to think about.

How courageous to make a list of your Ufo’s, I don’t want to know how many I have! Love your new sashiko bag

The stitching is so delicate and so feminine....the bag is lovely. Now can you teach me how to get off my "you-know-what" and get busy on my own unfinished projects?!!

Echoing Magpie..."Only 20 UFOs? - bah!"
LOVE your sashiko bag. I've got some small samples of Sashiko that I made into cards, but I haven't given them to anyone yet.
