UFO Friday is my (usually) bi-weekly series where I show you what projects I’ve been working on (UFO standing for UnFinished Objects). For more of these, look here and for every other week’s feature, Finished Things Saturday, look here.
No matter how hard I try, I never seem to make it to the point where I only start a new project in exchange for three finished UFOs. Although this time Mother Nature is partially to blame, blessing me with elderberries so very ripe that I had to use them before they left Smelling A Bit Fermented to arrive at Vinegar, Done.
I’ve been wanting to try botanical dye for ages and I really didn’t want the berries to go to waste. It was experimental at best, but I think I found a new hobby (yet another one…)!
While I could argue in favour of urgency with the dyeing project I really do not have any excuse for drafting a new pattern. I’m done with the prototype so far and made the lining for the actual thing, and I think I’d love to make another from leather sometime this Autumn. Can you tell from the sketches and pieces what it’s going to be?
