2016 Finish-A-Long - First Quarter Entries

Luckily I have not that many UFO's flying about (yet). There are only two projects that have wanted finishing for a while. Maybe entering them for the 2016 Finish-A-Long will see them completed.

1. Tessellation Style Pillowcase

I had started the pillowcase as a birthday present for a friend but when I noticed that I would not get it done in time and had to switch to a different present, the urgency to finish the project just dissipated. Still I like the colours of all the triangles and once finished the pillowcase will be gorgeous. So I really should just go on and finish it alright. 

2. Mobile Phone Cover for my Sister

The thing is, I had already made her one. Then she got a new phone and the cover had to be altered to make it fit, only that my sister did not like the alterations (nor did I very much to say the truth). So we are speaking about attempt number three to finally get the (current) phone out of the sock and into a cover. 

Below is my fabric choice. You cannot quite see it but the stripes of the striped fabric are duck eggshell blue. The cover will be made of the striped fabric and have ruffles of the 'Botanique' print on the front, which in turn will be held in place by the blue velvet ribbon. The blue fabric will used as lining. To close the cover I thought to use press buttons. And of course the butterfly needs applying, mostly because the first cover I made had its sibling applied on top and my sister does not want to do without. 

Sheesh... motivation please.

If you have unfinished projects just biding their time, you might consider joining the Finish-A-Long as well.
