I bet your wondering why I have so many space crafts that I need a way to organise them, right?
Well in the sewing/crafting world, UFO stands for Un- Finished Objects.
So being the neat freak I am, unfinished projects can feel messy and overwhelming to me.Here is my simple solution to keep these organised, prevents them getting messed up and also means they are easy to see and I am more likely to grab one and finish it off.
For starters I have a notebook sitting on my sewing desk, right beside me sewing machine with a list of things I want or need to do next.
I will work my way through this list (not in order), things that "need" to be done, will be done in order and take priority over "wants".
As I complete an item, I scrawl it out so i can no longer see it, and its clearly crossed off.
If I have the fabrics in mind for particular projects, or have started to cut something, I will bag it in it own zip lock bag, and stick a little sticker on the front to tell me at a glance what project is in the bag.
and then they are stored in this container. Looks kind of pretty for UFOs don't you think?
How do you organise your unfinished projects?
Do you have an actually "to do list" or is it more like a mental wish list?
I have been admiring these cushion for a while now, and with Christmas fast approaching I thought I better get to work on my Christmas "to make" list.
I made these covers removable so they could 1) fit over existing cushions, 2) not have to try and store a filled cushion during the rest of the year and 3) not have to worry what cushion filling would actually store like.
Cant wait until Christmas time and have these on display! (First I need to finish the other 2 cushions)
This is the tutorial I used, from Sparkle Power!, to make the removable cover.
