25 UFO Projects for You

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Spring cleaning is more than house chores for me. Instead, it means that I need to clear out my UFO’s and turn them into something usable. Now, that doesn’t mean that I have to finished the original project. Instead, I like to challenge myself to create something totally different and completely useable. Turn your UFO's into something new and functional with these easy to make projects.

To help you do the same, I’ve put together a bunch of free patterns from my archives in hopes to inspire you. There are more than 25 FREE sewing patterns here to help you turn those orphan blocks or UFO’s into something functional.

  4. Hi Heather. I have not been able to find the applique pattern for the Sewing Machine Cover, Item #20. Clicking on the link to Craftsy indicates that something went wrong. Has it been removed? Thanks for the great patterns. Love them.

    • Hello Ellen,
      Thank you for the note. Craftsy recently made changes to their site and removed many designer patterns. While many of mine are still active on their site, others need to be updated and moved to another location. I’ll keep you posted.
