Didn't somebody famous once say something about the only failure is in not trying? Yeah, well, I tried, and I'd still have to call the result a failure.
So I saw these beautiful Missoni pillows on the Target website, but I'm not much of a seamstress, so I thought I'd try the same technique on cardboard...with a glue gun.
There's also one in shades of purple that I love too. Okay, so in my defense, the nearest craft store is about 40 minutes away--and craft store + toddler = chaos. It's been a rough week because Emme's been teething and has been getting up several times a night. My husband is on 3rd shift, so he's basically absent....I have no idea how single moms do it!!!
Back to my craft fail - if I had the opportunity to go choose my own felt colors specifically for this project, I think it would have turned out somewhat better. However, I just had a couple scrap pieces from trying to make felt flowers a couple months ago.
So without further delay, here she is....
If I had the time and patience and materials to do it again, I think it would turn out better overall....but I'm still not sure that this look is meant for anything but a pillow. Wall hangings....not so much.
I hope this has given you a feeling of joy and achievement as I'm sure any project you've completed recently MUST be better than this (I read an article on how to be a happy mom yesterday, and she mentioned that moms spend too much time comparing themselves....it's okay, I'm fine with this failure)
Have you had a complete craft fail? Please share the juicy details!
If by some crazy chance that this idea ran through your mind, I want to spare you the burnt fingers from the hot glue gun...so I've linked this post to:
Take Care and have a great weekend -
