UFO... finished*

I ordered the material (Funky feathered friends by angelaanderson) for this top from Spoonflower in November last year.  When it arrived I made an Oliver + S hopscotch top and cut out the Oliver + S sailboat top in a size 4.  I had every intention of sewing it up....

Eight months later I found this plastic bag

And about four hours after I unpacked the bag I had this!

I used some pearl snaps from the Snap Source instead of buttons and I overlapped the shoulder flaps the correct way this time.

Another finished object

(*I was going to call this "UFO to FO" but then had second thoughts....  One of my professors at university was strongly opposed to abbreviations that were not universally accepted or might have two or more meanings.  Prof barked loudly at anyone who wrote, for instance, that the child had a "TOF" - was that Tetralogy of Fallot or Tracheoesophageal Fistula?   So, remembering his sensible words I rewrote the title of this post and hope now there is no misunderstanding.)


  1. Yes, wise words from the Prof. I bet he wasn't thinking of sewing or FO when he said that. Well, knowing him, perhaps he was thinking FO! Nice TOP!

  2. Ha! We had a North American woman teach emergency medicine (veterinary) and I never knew if she was talking about the pet's risk of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation or fetching her a Diet Coke.
    Great top. hope it still fits after all that time in the bag!

    1. No chance of it fitting the original intended recipient so it will be going to a new home.
