WIPW- Hussif completed.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s a miracle for sure that I finished the Hussif, and, in the same year I began it.

I was enticed by Sharon’s suggestion that people join in a Work In Progress Wednesday mini challenge.

It didn’t have to be a current or new project but one where you might pull out UFOs from where-ever you put them out of sight.

I always wanted to make a hussif but I know it would have been on a wish list and most likely never even started.        I can only say again –      Thank you Sharon.

WIPW began mid April 2014 and here is my first photo and here is the last full front view.  I was going to add links back to the others but there are too many.  If you wish to see the full inside it is in my  Flickr photos           I appreciate having visitors and comments and I don’t want to drive you crazy with links.

I had not given a lot of thought to the closure -(well I hadn’t given much thought to any of the hussif- it just developed by itself)

If I rolled the hussif, I thought two, satin covered, elasticized bands would work but found with all the bits and pieces that would look awful.

So I ended making it a three-fold and slipping 2 flat bands -left over from the reversed satin I used  to bind the edge.  The front has the cameo and the decorated bands can be placed on this side or what is the middle section.

I am really happy that although the goodies inside make the hussif lumpy, the edges are straight all around.

May never happen again in my lifetime.

So!  Next year WIPW will keep running and the mini challenge is still open to those who wish to lighten their UFO bucket.  It is free, No stress, No stitch police, just your own pleasure of finishing something begun.

Thanks for following 🙂
