Hello Fellow UFO Busters! I have another Finish to report this week.
A few years ago, when I first started quilting, I took a class to make this purse.
The purpose was to learn how to bind a quilt. Basically, we bound this quilted fabric all around and then shaped it into a purse.
I bought some really cute buttons to put on this purse. And that’s when it turned into a UFO. I have re-sewn buttons before, but never put a brand-new one on. How do you line it up correctly with the buttonhole? How do you know the button will fit through the hole? Why do my buttons always look like they got attacked by a sewing machine with a reason for revenge?
So this week I buttoned down and got serious about finishing this UFO. (hahaha, sorry, had to pun!)
Then I realized that I will never carry this purse. It’s shallow (which means that anything you put in it is in danger of falling out!), it really needs a zipper to be functional (and buttons, but whatever!), and the strap is too dinky (I know, easily fixable). When you add up all those cons, it just doesn’t make sense to finish this purse. I was never going to use it even if I did get around to adding a button. I couldn’t in good conscious pawn it off on a family member. And I would be aghast if I gave it to another quilter.
So I did the only thing left.
And that counts as a Finish!
I’m linking up with Susan at Blackberry Creek Home Arts for her weekly UFO Party!
