I follow a lot of blogs. A lot of blogs. One of them is called Lindsay Sews, and in yesterday's post, she asked about crafting fails. Well, that called to mind a major fail I perpetrated back in December of 2012.
A friend of mine was looking for a stuffed animal version of a frog in a cartoon. It looked like this.
Cute, right? Her daughter was completely obsessed with that character, so she was trying to be a good mom.
Ever reaching for new heights, I offered to make it for her myself! I developed an idea, then a pattern, and went to cutting and sewing.
Here was the result.
Um... right. I obviously couldn't sell my friend that travesty, so we scrapped the idea, and thankfully she was OK with not getting it. Instead, I decided it was an alien octopus with measles, and kept it for kids to play with at my house when they come over.
Go ahead. Laugh.
