The last two projects I made for my husband, DD, didn’t come out as planned (here and here). The fit was way off and I was very disappointed in myself. I thought switching to a different pattern company may help, especially one that focuses on menswear. So I turned to Thread Theory for his next… Continue reading Plaid Jedediah Ugly Pants That Are a Fail and a Hit!
Oh hey now, looks like that time of year has come around again – it’s time to dust off your failed makes for display because it’s FAIL FEBRUARY, y’all! Fail February is a time when we come together to share, commiserate, and learn from each other’s sewing failures. We spend so much time sharing what… Continue reading Fail February 2018!
Alas, our first official Fail February has come to an end. What a great month to get those pesky projects-gone-wrong off our chests and out in the open! As for me, I normally share my failed projects and go over a closet de-stashing, but I’m currently still in the works of cleaning out my closet,… Continue reading Fail February: Your Fails!
Hi there! I’m back with my second failed project for Fail February 2017. This fail is simply a sizing problem- I love the style, colors, and pattern, but I messed up with that darn sizing! It’s the Seamwork Aurora Tank and I’ve made one before which was a complete win! I wear my first Aurora… Continue reading Fail February: The Aurora Tank of Tightness

Happy last day of Fail February! We are lucky that this year is a leap year, so we have one more day to share our sewing “fails” with the world. Woo-hoo! Today I’m sharing a Deer and Doe Plantain Tee that is pretty much a fabric de-stash project. I had a big piece of some… Continue reading Fail February and the Awkward Christmas Tee
In the spirit of Fail February, I have a project that probably should not have been. For an explanation of Fail February, check out my last post. Now, let’s revel in some poor decisions I’ve made! I wanted to make DD a little something for our upcoming [cold] trip to Japan. The Paxson sweatshirt by… Continue reading Fail February and the Paxson Grandpa Sweater That Should Not Have Been
Happy February, everyone! I see we have all survived January… high five! Now onto a new month… I’m not sure if February is most people’s favorite month what with most people in cooler climates being sick of winter and looking forward to spring. Plus V-Day isn’t high on the list of favorite holidays from what… Continue reading “Fail February” and It’s Getting Easier to Say Goodbye
