Epic CHRISTMAS Fails
I will NOT be linking these photos ANYWHERE. I’m not SEOing this crap. I hope Google never, ever indexes this post with me at all. This post is only for you, the loyal folks who read my blog. I’m going to show some of the stuff that happened during my 3 week sewing crisis. It wasn’t pretty. But it’s good for a laugh!
Way Too Small Christmas Tie
He’s making that face because he knows this is the tie version of Fat Guy In A Little Coat.
Horrible Christmas Pajamas #1
I have no words for this. There’s no excuse at all. Sorry for the bad photos too. These were never meant for the blog…I wish you could have seen her face. Sofie is only 2, but I swear she looked at me with pity in her eyes.
Horrible Christmas Pajamas #2
I didn’t have the nerve to ask Bella to put these on. They were meant to be “ugly Christmas jammas”, but not this dang ugly. I tried to size down a pattern by adding darts in front and back. Then I took the side seams are in. It was still too big, so I put a big nasty seam through the center back; all the way up the collar. I forgot to adjust the shoulders, so the shoulder seam sits a couple inches low.
I made pants too. MC Hammer pants.
Mod Podge Fabric Ornament Atrocity
After that, my creative block spilled over into crafting too. This looks like some sort of mummified body part. I tried some hair bows, and broke my hot glue gun.
Anyways, it went on and on. I quit taking pictures after these. There was a blouse (for me) that got thrown in the trash. A couple wadders after that I just quit sewing. I sorted my fabric, cleaned my machines, organized buttons. I’d plan a project, iron, then get my fabric on the cutting table….but I couldn’t cut! I still don’t know what happened, but I’m over it now.
I’m posting my Sally dress (sewn pre-crisis) right on top of this. I’d die if someone popped over to SewsNBows for the first time and saw this! I just hadn’t had this many epic fails in a row before and wanted to share. What about you; have you ever had a creative block? How did you snap out of it?
