A Project Fail – Where’s Waldo?

We’ve all had failed projects right? Please tell me I’m not alone. At least yesterday’s project gave me a chuckle. I brought home an awesome T-shirt honoring Roy Lichtenstein with visions of adapting it into a tank. Cut, cut, sew, tie . . . And all I can think of is Where’s Waldo? :). The vision is made complete with my husband’s reading glasses that I am now borrowing all too often. What happened to my perfect sight? Anyway, laughs are so good and I have learned a ton from my “fails” along the way. Do have any good fails? Pictures get you extra double bonus points.

  1. Aw com’ on, it’s not THAT bad! My fails usually turn into UFOs. I have them stacked up determined to finish them, fix them, whatever, some day!

    1. You are too generous. I usually donate mine to the Goodwill only to be haunted by the idea that I will run into someone wearing one of my thrown off beastly creations. πŸ™‚

  2. I think it’s all in the attitude. You take another picture with a big smile on your face and this is a win! It’s all in the angles πŸ™‚ I admire that you finished it, photographed it, and wrote a post about it. I have more failures than I care to mention. Maybe you can start a new weekly feature, Failure Fridays πŸ™‚

    1. You are so right-I need an attitude adjustment or at least some modeling lessons. πŸ™‚ Failure Fridays is awesome. I have enough material to keep that going for years. Ha!

  3. You are not alone! The last two dresses I sewed for myself were worn once and donated. They were well made but oh so very wrong. I am not sure how I wore them even the once.

    1. Clothes sewing is just humbling but a big goal of mine is to get better at it. Nice to know I am not alone. πŸ™‚

  4. It is not so bad – the question is what was your original idea? I think you still can make it works for you. And you are not the first and the last one with failures… Mine are stuffed somewhere far away off my sight – It is good idea to make a post about them…
    Success with your next project!

    1. Thanks. You’re right the tank is not THAT bad compared to some of my failures. I think it’s healthy and fun to show when things don’t go just as planned. πŸ™‚

  5. Goodwill? No way! I’ll take your failures any day!! Hey, that rhymes…think you look cute in glasses.
