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.
I haven’t done one of these in ages! And I might be down with a cold at the moment but a bed is (almost) as good a place to hand-sew as any other. I can’t really work on bigger UFOs here – I need to take stock of those sometime soon, anyway – but at least I can do tiny things, like mending or crafting small accessories. I’ve been making scrunchies these last few days, for example. Nothing to write home about, maybe, but still better than nothing, and they are a great (and useful) scrap buster. Bonus points because I’m wearing one of them as I type this because it puts less strain on my already headache-y scalp than a normal hair elastic.
Isn’t this patchwork print cute? It’s only a one-row-of-motif strip but when I found it at the thrift shop for half a Euro I couldn’t resist. I think I won’t turn this one into scrunchies, it would be a pity to ruin this print, but rather make patches out of it.
Speaking of this print, I always adore these hue reference bits (there’s probably a professional name for those. This isn’t it.) on multicoloured fabrics. It might be just a tiny scrap but I kind of want to make something with them, something extra, so they won’t be just tossed out…
I’d say my vlogs kind of count as UFO-ish at the moment, too… I’m not well enough to spend enough time sitting at my desk editing right now so the footage just piles up. I’ll experiment with some cutting time tomorrow, though, and there are a few commissions that won’t draw themselves as well…
Anyway, I hope you’re in better health than me right now, have a wonderful weekend! ♥
