The other day I got another UFO from a yard sale. The gal threw it in for free b/c there was only 1/2 of a top. Her mom was working on a double knit project. I assume someone else bought the squares that would finish this. Nice thing about showing up late to a sale, you don't have to spend as much as the early birds.
I thought I could cheat and just add a light solid w/some applique for another good size utility keepsake.
Kind of a Sunshine and Shadows style.
Would you believe these two pieces are about the same size. What are the chances of that!!
I pinned right sides together across the top and side just to be sure. They are a perfect match! The diagonal seam on the top piece matches perfect with the diagonal set of the bottom bow ties.
Now if I can just find a needle that will sew double knit!
I think there will be enough of the small bow ties left over to make a small rug.
I just love getting to rescue other people's UFOs!
I picked up about a dozen yards of a nice Red double knit at the last yard sale too. I think it will make a very nice back for this soon to be new utility snuggle under. A thin batt and yarn ties will be a nice way to add a TA- Done to my list of TO-DOs this year.
