It's Friiiiiiidddaaaaaaayyyyyy. Let's all just have a little smiley dancey moment for Friday.
I want to have a little sharing session today which will hopefully make you smile. It's an unnecessarily honest post because (with the exception of those people who witnessed these failures who have already been
But then I thought- No, Katie. No. Share your failings with the world to make them grin and to break the last taboo, which is to show that craft projects do not always end in glittery, button-covered, wonderfully-iced perfection- despite what Pinterest tells you!
So, here goes nothing- two of my recent crafty failings to feast your lovely eyes upon!
First things first, I mentioned earlier in January that I was planning to trial my own version of Color Me Katie's rainbow flowers. I did everything I had to do, which wasn't exactly much; putting food dye in jars (the same dye I used to make my purplecakes) then sticking the flowers in. I waited, and I waited. I went to bed (at night time, not with craft-fail related depression), woke up in the morning and literally RAN down the stairs like it was Christmas to see what had happened to the flowers. The answer? Nothing.
Well, actually- that's not quite fair on this little guy. I've had the flowers in the food dye since last Sunday, and this is STILL the only flower with any colour to it. I think the other flowers must be fasting or something, or perhaps allergic to e numbers....
Ready for craft fail number 2? This one is definitely more impressively rubbish. Ages ago the lovely Ms Swaine popped over for an evening of fabric-sharing, tea-drinking and gossiping about mutual friends (only kidding, guys- we just talked about Made In Chelsea for four hours). Fran blogged about her productive evening (you might've recognised me in one of her photos) and I was planning on doing the same until I made what turned out to be felt roadkill.
My idea was to make a beautiful little fox plushie that looked something like this:
But what I actually ended up with was this:

Have you had any spectacular craft fails you don't mind sharing?
