Fail February

Fail February

Hear ye, hear ye! It is now officially February and I, RED of Sew RED-y, do hereby declare this to be Fail February!

Let the sewing community come together to proclaim and celebrate our glorious sewing fails! Shout it from the mountain tops! Spread it through the valleys! We are not perfect. Let’s rejoice!

OK maybe I’m getting a little carried away here, but I am ready to make Fail February official! It garnered some interest last year, so let’s DO THIS! I’m even busting out an official logo this year:


So what does this mean, RED? What do I have to do?

It’s simple – post your failed sewing or crafting projects in the spirit of Fail February. Maybe someone else can learn from your mistakes. Maybe we can all feel a little better about those projects that didn’t go right. Maybe we’ll have a good chuckle.

If you decide to also share on Instagram, mark your fails with #failfebruary. I’d like to do an end-of-month roundup of your shared fails. We’ll make it a big fail party! Wait… that sounds kind of sad, but I swear it will be fun! 🙂

I already have two projects of my own to share this month, so stay tuned! Let’s all fail together!


P.S. I made a button for Fail February! Feel free to grab the code below and share on your blog! (Pssst… it’s my first time even attempting to make an html button so let me know if it either works or it’s a legit fail!)

    1. Amen!! I have so many fails under my belt after 5 years and I still make terrible garments here and there… not to mention all the silly mistakes! But yes, it makes us better in the end!

    1. There’s always next year if your fail turns into a win! I get worried that I won’t make any fails one year and I won’t have anything to share, but then I’m like…. WHO AM I KIDDING?? I will always fail! Well, here and there at least 😉
