UFO's are a Good Thing...

Blogtober Giveaway post - don't forget to enter

This UFO is now another Christmas finish (it's only a baby UFO - 1 year old - unlike some other adolescent and young adults hiding in the cupboards).

If I had finished it last year I would have laboriously cut out a hanging-sleeve sized piece of backing, sewn it into a tube, turned it right side out,turned in and hand hemmed the edges, then sewn it on after finishing the binding.

But...because I left this for a whole year, I found a nifty tutorial just one week ago!

Clever,clever Beth at Plum and June had this tutorial on her blog - voilà charm square corners for a dowel to go aross the back. (Go and look at the tutorial, it was for a blog hop and there are some lovely projects on the hops along the way).

 Now it's a finished object  - and my sister's Christmas present is done (she did get a present last year, just in case you were wondering if she had to wait a whole year to get it back!)
