So much Love and Care goes into our crafting. So when it goes wrong, it really goes wrong. Sometimes there are tears, expletives, and laughter. We wanted to share with you what has recently happened with our oops's.
My new phrase this year!
Here is 1 I just had to share. I did this last week.
You get it out of the dedicates bag, & you like WTH happened??
My 1st reaction was anger at the product. Then I calmed down and went over all my steps leading up to that mess.
OH CRAP! I didn't see the special tag, with washing instructions.
"DO NOT WASH" until after project is sewn. This was my 1st time ever buying one of those pre-cut strip packs, and I just didn't notice it. My bad!
I will attempt to resurrect this nightmare, and post an update later of what I could do with it.
|So. Many. Tears and swear words.|
Pinterest me em's. Those are no joke! They make us laugh and think I knew I wasn't the only 1!
This one is a doosie, a Pinterest DIY Swiffer Duster, made from fleece. DO NOT USE CHEAP FLEECE! Especially that Nursery Fleece!
I will be tearing apart the other one that I haven't cut. I think I can salvage that one.
**Rant Warning**I am very disappointed in today's fabrics. What is readily available on most shelves is not that great. I always try and find sturdier fabrics, and avoid real cheap thin ones when possible. I would love to purchase a higher thread count fabric. I like to feel and touch it 1st! Most massive chain stores do not carry the good stuff.
I recently wrote about a project I had been working on for 2 years. Shelley had bought me laceweight yarn, and I was supposed to make something pretty just for me with it. Well, I did the entire wrap, minus the ends (which were another several repeats, ack!), and I hated it. HATED it.
|2 years for something I ended up hating.|
|much happier with it now.|
|Looks good, but I was only able to make one sock|
|We're becoming a shawlette now. Screw you, gloves!|
So have any of you ever had a project go really wrong? Please share in the comment section below.
Happy Crafting! Alyssa and Shelley, aka 2 Dainty Crafters!
