They say it's not wasting time as long as you enjoy what you're doing, but when I work on something and then realize....yeah, not so much...I feel like I've wasted my time. However, maybe it's not so bad to share these craft fails and remind ourselves that the blogosphere is almost always the most polished side of the story.
1. I was cutting up an old T-shirt sleeve and had a left over piece from the shoulder area. I thought I could make some kind of fringe necklace. I was wrong. My husband came around the corner and said, "What is that? It's so creepy looking!". He was so right -I'd have to be part of a biker gang to pull this thing off. Hideous!
2. I had been messing around with stitching on felt and thought pairing it with ribbon would make a cute bookmark/wrap thing...um, no. This was only a draft, so admittedly it could easily be prettier, but the entire concept is stupid. It's so cumbersome that I would never in a million years actually use it as a bookmark. Moving along...
3. Admittedly I have a pom pom addiction, however using this method to make one out of a napkin just didn't do it for me. The funny thing is, I made it over a month ago and it's become this joke that we keep moving/tossing around our living room.
HOWEVER, like Michaela said of her sketchbook in her recent interview, lots of ideas can grow out of our notes and attempts. I already have ideas for taking these things further, so let's see if I get there!
What about you? Any epic craft fails you'd care to share? Crafting is definitely not all rainbows and unicorns is it?
