My brother is a big fan of Fail Blog. There are quite a lot of, um, questionable items there. But there is also lots of funny. (The link there goes to just the G-rated entries.)
Today, I had a bit of a fail myself.
You see, I thought that a pompom made out of crochet thread would be really cute. I had visions of it becoming a necklace. It turns out, crochet thread is really useful stuff. Just not for pompoms. When it failed, I realized that, duh, the reason that pompoms made from yarn work, is that the yarn is puffy. That puffiness helps it work. Crochet yarn...not puffy.
Oh well, better to try something and have it not work than to not try, right?
It did get me to start a set of photos on Flickr of crafty fails. And then I thought it might be fun to start a group too. But guess what? There's already a CraftFail group! If you've got pics of things that didn't work out...add them there!
Care to share a craft fail here? You know you want to. And we all promise that we won't point and laugh...
