Math Fail

June 26, 2012

I was about to sew the shoulders on my pullover together when I realized the front and back stitches weren’t split evenly.  Dumb you guys. DUMB.

Love Her to Bits

Have you made any stupid mistakes lately? Crafty or not?

    I love your dog! so cute! I recently cut fabric with a dinosaur print and accidentally had the print upside down 😦

      Aw man, that’s the worst! Did you have extra fabric?

        Oh yes, luckily I had enough! Such a rookie mistake! 😛

    There’s probably not time to list all the mistakes I’ve made, but wow am I glad I stopped long enough to gaze at that pic of Lily! Fantastic!

      I was bummed until I saw the photo op. Wouldn’t have happened otherwise!

    So sad! But at least Lily has a new wig. In college, I once had to resew the waistband of a dirndl skirt THREE TIMES. Whatta waste of time!

      I think taking out the stitches that many times is worse than sewing it!

    Lily is gorgeous – I only recently discovered your blog and now it’s my favourite! Talking of dumb – today I spent hours taking my sewing machine apart & swearing at it after the feed dogs mysteriously stopped working, only to finally realise that I’d set both the stitch length and width to Zero….ooops……

      Yikes! Atleast you didn’t have to shell out $ for a mechanic. And thank you! 🙂

    I realized I was listening to a book on CD on shuffle, only on the third disc…

      No way!!! How were you able to follow any of it?!

    I don’t make things that require math or patience for this exact reason. I can’t even make a friendship bracelet without getting angry.

      A cool off period is usually enough for me to pick it up and finish at a later time. Then the problems are all forgotten (kind of).

    yes. knitting a shawl and I totally had the right side not equal the left side…. sigh. Frogged & started over.

    cooling off period is definitely needed.
