It’s been a while, but I have another Friday Fail for you. Ok, actually I had one for last week, but didn’t get pictures of it before I was so disgusted that I had to trash the whole thing — it was a mummy costume that I was going to do a tutorial for — maybe someday I’ll tell the story. But back to this weeks massive failure.

I know, I know, you’re looking at it and saying to yourself “What a cute little selvege project. I sure wish I had a little travel sewing kit that looked like that!”. Well, maybe you aren’t saying that to yourself. But you should be, because it is cute, I don’t disagree with that. But wait!

Unfortunately I forgot to take into account that the cover would not be stiff enough to keep the pockets inside pulled tight. And so, if you just tip it ever so slightly…..

Every freaking thing inside falls out! Argh. Fail!

I’m going to start a new thing… There’s been way too much chatter about the way so many blogs only post the good stuff… Apparently some people think that us bloggers aren’t keeping it real. So here it is. On Friday’s I’m posting an epic craft/sewing/art fail. I’ll try to do mine, but I’d love to have you guys share your mishaps too!

So here’s the first one. An eel costume for Alexis’ 3rd grade research paper presentation. She was supposed to make it herself, so we talked about how to do it. I had this great image in my mind about how it would look. I even let her do the sewing on the machine.

It should be noted that the design was entirely mine… she tried to convince me to do things a little differently… but I didn’t listen. Of course.
