12 Days of Giveaways: Day 7–UFO Sightings!

Congrats to Mary Anne, our winner of yesterday’s giveaway! We asked about your favorite ways to customize your sewing projects. Here’s what Mary Anne had to say: “Embellishment is the way I go. I’m a crazy quilter at heart so embellishing things comes naturally. Buttons, embroidery, old jewelry – just whatever works with the particular project.” Thanks to everyone for participating!

felties 12 Days of Giveaways: Day 7  UFO Sightings!

Do you enjoy sewing toys and/or softies? I find that they’re a fun way to use small scraps of fabric and trim from my stash. I also appreciate that they’re quick to make, so it’s not another project that gets added to my growing pile of UFOs (unfinished objects)! So today we’re giving away the awesome book Fanciful Felties from MummySam: Sew People to Meet, Places to Go & Things to Do by Samantha Cotterill (Stash Books). To enter, simply answer this question in the comments section below: “How many UFOs do you have?” We’ll announce the winner and the Day 8 giveaway tomorrow!

  1. Valerie says:

    Do I really have to count them? Too many!!!

  2. Jeny says:

    about 18 — my machine had to go to the shop and I’ve been getting more and more nervous. I am having a family Christmas party the 19th had 20 dish towel to machine embroider, had to put it all on hold and now I’m a bit behind. So, 17 dish towels and a onesie!

  3. Heidi says:

    Oh, my…. I don’t think I could count them all!!

  4. Diana says:

    I have a mazillion UFO’s. Stitching projects, a dress on my form, a prom dress on my daughter’s form, probably 20 or so cross stitch items, a few hardanger things, a few mending projects, beach robes for my nephews in Hawaii, baby projects for kids who can all walk now…I could go on forever! :-) I save every 6 X 6 ” scrap and bit of stuff I can to make scrap blankets too. I probably have enough flannel and fleece to make 3 or 4 lap blankets right now. I have stopped purchasing fabric for myself currently and made a promise last New Year’s Eve to only sew from the stash (both sewing and embroidery). I will have to renew that promise for the New Year again!

  5. Karen A says:

    I’m not sure I can count that high!! I know I have a least 8 quilts started, 3 bags, a blouse , fabric for 2 slipcovers, and a few things that aren’t even started yet that should be done for Christmas. I tell my friends that if I got stuck in my house I would have enough projects to keep me busy for at least a year.

  6. Cindy Farmer says:

    I am embarrassed to say that I have about 20 UFO’s! I just recently finished up several. I am trying!

  7. Linda says:

    Too many to count! Several to finish before Christmas! But I work better under pressure!!

  8. Kathy VanBuren says:

    I have 4 ufo’s but hopefully will get them all finished the next two weeks while I am off from work. One is an unfinished baby quilt, two unfinished tops I am making for myself and the third on is my final project to send into school at Penn Foster

  9. Sara says:

    I have an unfinished baby quilt for my daughter and she is now 21 years old. It took 3 years to finish the valances for my bedroom but finally did get them complete.

  10. Gail Banks says:

    As for UFO’s I would be afraid to count. Maybe like 10 or 12 or maybe 25. The thing I am very good at is the PJ’s I cut last year I am sewing this year. When they are done that is 3 subtracted from the total and the kids have more PJ’s!!

  11. Linda T says:

    Oh that would required higher math skills to figure out. Several leap to mind and I am sure that is the tip of the iceberg.

  12. Maria Kievit says:

    Oh, my goodness. UFO’s you ask? Probably with everything in every craft I ever tried and worked on close to a 100 projects waiting to get finished. A lot of patterns are cut out, just need to be put together, some just finishing, and to much more to mention.

  13. Four aprons, two pair of corduroy pants, and a pile of Barbie doll clothes. All for Christmas gifts – thank goodness they don’t have to be mailed!

  14. Janice says:

    One left. I just made a UFO from last summer into a purse. It was supposed to be a tote bag but was not going well.

  15. Connie says:

    right now, only one quilt to put together….made myself catch up before I started Christmas sewing!!!

  16. Janice Conrad says:

    The 1/2 is counted only because heming takes ten minutes (pajama bottoms). I’ll feel better the day they’re all done.

  17. Janice Conrad says:

    Only 7 and 1/2. I hope it counts for the better that the pattern is cut and marked and then just sitting.

  18. Sarah McKinney says:

    I have a halloween table runner and some cosmetic bags and a stack that should get to the ufo but have to get started first.

  19. Mel says:

    I try and finish but at the moment I have two. They will get done, I can hear them nag me every time I enter my craft room!! lol

  20. Diana L says:

    I try to not have any. I finish it, even if I give it away. I’m kind of that way – I can’t not finish something! But, I have a LOT of fabric in my stash for when inspiration strikes!

  21. Ruth says:

    Well, let’s see…I have at least 6 or 7 summer garments I never finished; 3 “vintage” pillbox hats that aren’t quite done; I still have 5 Christmas gifts to finish (do they count?); I also have several refashions to finish. Other than that, I’m in great shape!

  22. Inita Bermudez says:

    I am going to make stuff Horses. With fack hair. I also have a new dog, I’ll make stuff toys for her.

  23. Robyn says:

    I have so many UFO’s that it’s kind of embarrassing. Part of my goal for the new year is get them finished or toss them. I hate having them hang over my head. Especially since most of them seem to be for my kids.

  24. Julianna W. says:

    If you count sewing projects in addition to felting projects, I have about 15 UFOs! A cute, colorful quilted wallet that got so complicated I “temporarily” set it aside to make something more fun; several outfits that got pushed aside when the weather changed before my project was finished; a couple of Christmas gifts and baby gifts that are still underway; and a few half-made quilted critters. The good news is that my college courses are over for now and I have three straight weeks of crafting and creating ahead of me! ;-)

  25. Cathy says:

    I remember 2 and a pile of mending. I have a toddler quilt to piece on point. And stamped quilt blocks to embroider, problem with those blocks is I accidentally washed them and washed off the quilting lines. OOps! Then now I have tons of fabric I bought to start nightgowns, bags, hair scrunchies, knotted flannel quilts, corduroy skirt (for me), several baby quilts, and tons of scraps saved for various problems. I need a seperate building for it all my sewing room is over flowing ! Help! Never mind just don’t touch my stuff! Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year. My resolutins for the new year are again to catch up and not BUY more fabric! Nahhh!

  26. Sherry M. says:

    I have so many I’ve lost count! LOVE starting and learning something new so conseqently, many things are left unfinished as I move on to the next fun project!! ..Crosstitch, embroidery, knitting, crochet, quilts, a few cloth dolls, stamping, painting, beading….I DO make myself finish at least one started project every month!

  27. Lianna Santee says:

    I have about 6 unfinished objects… :) Little felt ornaments as a matter of fact. I have them stitched just neet to add beads…just cant seem to get to it! Holidays…
