February Sewing Challenge - Turn UFOs into PFOs

I'm not a great finisher.  My house is littered with half-finished projects.  I tend to jump into a new project with gusto, but then it all just kind of fizzles out.  So my challenge for February is to turn some UFOs (unfinished objects) into PFOs (proudly finished objects)!

The main item on my list is a play tent that I started for my boys about a year to 18 months ago.  They're always trying to build dens so I thought that it would be great to make them a tee-pee style play tent; something a little like this:

It's not far off, but I didn't use a pattern and I had to patch together some of the fabric to make it fit, so I'm not sure how well it's all going to fit together! Fingers crossed for a good result.

Another item that's been hidden away for about three years now (!) is a sleeve that I started making for my tablet.  It was my first foray into quilting and I started it in a sewing class, but then I stopped going and the binding had me a bit confused so it slowly made its way to the bottom of my scrap bag.  I still don't have anything to carry my tablet in so it would be great to finish it, plus I really love the fabric.

I think I'll leave it there.  No point in trying to do too much.  Hopefully I'll be back at the start of next month with some beautiful photos of my PFOs.
