    Cutting out pieces of fabric for a quilt, and a bunch of them were the wrong size.

    I’ve made lots of cards that ended up in the trash, but nothing with an amusing story to go with it. Don’t have any good stories, really. But, I did make a photo/scrap album for a newborn by covering a store bought album with fabric and adding scrapbooking supplies. Put the baby’s name on the front in pretty metal letters (glued on!). Took a photo of it for my archives. Mailed it off. Glanced at the photo one day and realized I spelled the baby’s name wrong. Cringe. And I used to work as a proofreader. Always pays to give things a second look.

    Tried to make a quilt from a patchwork print sheet. I never had a lesson on quilting and needless to say…it was a total mess. I threw it out. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

    as i was sewing the front and back panels together on a quilt,”almost all the way finished” i realized the back panel was facing the wrong way 🙁

    A friend gave me a ceramic cow to decorate. I got as far as painting her with silver and gold to begin steampunking her. I bought all sorts of gears, gear dies, jewelry to strip for parts, light bulbs and all kinds of stuff to decorate her. I then rolled my chair into the table she was sitting on, knocked her to the tile floor and shattered her into a thousand pieces. Then I wrapped her in a box, sealed the box and gave her back to my friend as a rattle (I have friends with very good senses of humor).

    Once hot glued a bunch of letters to a huge banner on a vinyl floor. I had no other choice really. Needless to say, it was stuck to the flooring. I did finally figure out to use ice to break the bond, but it still left a few blisters in the flooring. My husband was not a happy camper.

    I made a “house on fire” costume to go with my sons’ firefighter and dalmation costumes. I put it in the basement and a water pipe burst and destroyed it!

    I cross stitched a large Christmas piece that measured 14×12. I attempted to framed it myself. After stretching it I thought I had turned it over to spray adhesive to the back but realized I had sprayed the front and NEVER got that off. The piece that I had worked on for four months ended up in the trash.

    Trying to crochet a purse using fun fur. It looked awful … my husband said it looked like something a street walker would use 😛

    As a kid, I made a quilt top by sewing lots of miscellaneous and odd-shaped pieces of material together. It was not flat and was totally unusable, but I spent months on it, and it kept getting bigger and more and more unmanageable. I wonder if I have it around someplace or did my mom throw it away!

    I’ve had a number of projects that have not turned out quite as I planned – but I am so frugal that I usually try to save the parts for different projects! I can’t think of anything that I have just thrown away!

    I make blankets out of one great big granny squares but due to my conditions (arthritis and fibro) I am using crochet cotton.. I had one blanket what would have covered almost a queen size bed and realized when I was almost finished that 5 rows in I missed two stitches and being that if I notice it .. .someone else will .. so I have to tear out every row that I did.. cursing a blue streak as I do it.. hours and hours of work.. I didnt touch the crochet hook for a bit once I finally got it done.

    My biggest craft disaster was while making an appliance cover for my coffee machine. I thought I was doing a random pattern only to finish and find that all the the blocks except one are not random. Now it just looks like I made a mistake!

    I had a large black and white picture I was going to throw away my granddaughter decided we could cover it with tons of glitter, the mistake was we forgot to use glue, so needless to say when we picked up the picture the glitter went everywhere.

  15. Janet Cobb

    I have to say that I’ve been lucky, no disasters! I’ve had some things that didn’t quite turn out as expected but that was just my personal expectations.

    I threw away a canvas I hand embroidered, thinking I made it crooked, not knowing I needed to wet block set it. ugh!

    Probably last summer when I decided to make shorts for the grandkids. Making quite a few I folded the fabric to cut out multiple pairs, many multiple. After killing my hands cutting I realized by folding the fabric wrong I had cut out all those pieces for the same side of the shorts without making any of the others… That fabric is now doll clothes.

    I tried to make a quilted wall hanging. I cut it crooked, the batting was wrong, the stitching was all over the place…. you get the idea. Needless to say, I don’t quilt.

    When I started art journaling I used the wrong type of glue and everything got stuck on anything even when the glue was dry.

    I wouldhave to say my biggest craft disaster was the time i tried to machine stitch a sweater a size 2 it finally fit my daughter she she was 8.yes i kept it ..i didnt want to waste the yarn.

    The first time I sewed something on my own- after taking a class, I sewed the sleeve in a shirt on inside out. Unfortunately for me, I had gone over my seams 5-6 times (I somehow thought this would hold the sleeves on better!) and had used such a tight stitch that I could not seam rip the project. I was devastated when I turned the project to the right side and saw what I had done… my mother ROLLED with laughter! I took another sewing class after that… I sure needed it!

  22. Patty Liu

    I think Jennifer Carmichael should win. I laughed so hard. I hope you were ok though.

  23. Gail Gill

    I have to agree with Patty Liu. Jennifer Carmichael’s post has me laughing out loud every time I think of it.
