WIP Wednesday - A Whole Bag of NOPE

Did you ever have one of those crafting days when everything you touch is cursed?  That was me last night.  I was trying to do some pencil toppers on the embroidery machine and it decided that I needed to stay RIGHT beside it while it worked...the thread was shredding and getting caught, needles were breaking, and I'm pretty sure it was laughing at me.  Then when I finally got that done and went back to the wallet I was working on, I tried to speed through it and messed that up too!
He doesn't have cataracts, that's glue.  And it's not coming off.
Holey fabric Batman!
First was iffy pattern placement (not my best fussy cutting for sure!), then trimming seams before I should have, really crooked topstitching, cutting holes in the fabric when I was trying to rip out said topstitching, and to top it off, finding a spot of dried glue on the outside.  I think I can salvage about 1/3 the pieces, but there is going to be a whole lot of re-cutting on my plate!  Unfortunately this one really needs to go out, so it can't go into timeout!
he lost half his head...
Today HAS to be better!  The worst part is that this is actually a pretty fast pattern, just very exact and detailed so I have to be on my game to make it look good!

  • Springs Creative Fabric Ambassador Projects - Awesome Disney fabrics - Need to finish by Friday! - Dakota tablet case, Pillow, Ipad stand (?) In the mail and now I wait for the good pics!
