The List...

Alrighty, I have finally been able to compile a list of all the finished projects. You can find it here at my listography. Items with check marks have already been completed, and items with strike-throughs have been abandoned. I will add links to the posts containing finished items. If I was working on a group of items that are the same idea them they will be counted as one. I think I found them all but I will be constantly updating the list so if I find any more lurking around the house I will add them. Seeing the list completed just rams home how many unfinished projects I really have. I blame it on too many good ideas. But not all were good ones, obviously, as I have already weeded out and abandoned 5 projects that I did not think were worth finishing.


Some wasabi knucks like the ones for sale in my etsy shop for me to wear (I think I may just take them out of the shop instead). Some crocheted maryjane slippers which were far too pink and usurped by a cute sewn tie-on version I recently found, which I will start once I finish this challenge. A very old basket purse project that was coming out okay but the basket turned out to be too heavy. A sock dog from ages ago when I used to make a few here and there. I have since lost the pattern and it is another hand-sewing project I do not want to do.


And lastly, the giant pile of felt teddy bears. The first one I made came out really cute, and I have another one nearly done and I will finish him too. But really, what was I thinking cutting out that many? I had intended to machine-sew them, but I messed up the size of the template and it came out way too small so I started hand-sewing them. And I really just do not enjoy hand sewing enough to commit to 2 dozen of them. But, would anyone like to have the big stack of pre-cut felt teddy bear shapes for appliqué or something? I will mail them to you for free, just leave me a comment here and a way to contact you.

You will notice I have checked off some things too, and I will share them next time. Happy crafting!

  1. Hi, I have to do a to do / to crochet / to sew list, too - I´m afraid I´ll be running out of paper while doing it ;)

    The teddy bears would be great for a preschool - or school, my 6yo sews things like this all the time :) and is so proud of them!

    Bye, Kati

  6. I counted your list, I also figured out how quickly you have to finish everything in order to meet your deadline. Do you want to know the results?

  7. Carolyn - Oh geez, I guess I cannot say no, but just keep in mind that most of this stuff really is just missing the last button, etc.
