Not all of my projects turn out…
This was one of them. Normally we all post our success projects but I am not perfect so I wanted to post my projects that don’t work out as well. And what I lwarned from them.
Aren’t they pretty?! – Totally check out her blog if you love Craigslist finds like I do.
So, I tried my own DIY…
First I wanted to use a shiny material that would stand out. But there were 2 problems. Shiny = slippery. Which means my cutting lines weren’t straight. And second, I didn’t have a lot of extra fabric.
Which means the material is useless. Luckily it was only about $15 for the material.
So I tried to use another material and that turned out a lot better. Except…
It didn’t turn out well since the material didn’t stand up well. 😦
It looks nothing like Victoria’s bows. I feel like she used a more stiff material than I did.
Oh well, not everything I make can turn out well.
What I learned: It’s ok not to have ever turn out the way I want. There’s something to be said about pressing seams. You always need more fabric than you think. Planning (as I did) is useful. And even with the most careful planning, things don’t always come out the way you want.
Bonus picture: My cat loves sitting on my clothes or anything on the bed. She doesn’t do it with papers on the floor or boxes. Only fabric on the bed.
