Well, I should have trusted my instincts regarding Eve's doll. Dolly now has a double french knot sized hole in the middle of her face. Noooooooooooo! I can't take a picture because it actually makes me feel sad. I had a little teary and have worked out a plan to repair her... but I have also bought more felt- thicker felt- this time so it will withstand a future attempt! At this stage I am thinking I will make Eve another doll (if she is not ready by Christmas, she won't care!), and if my repair is good enough, give poor folkster away.

Ah, craft fail.

A project that more went to plan is this little guy hanging on the tree. I used this tute from Elsie Marley. Fun! (and he doesn't have a nose...)

Oh nooooo!!! Craft fail is such a bummer... especially right at the end.
This is such a pressure cooker time of year for craft isn't it? I think it is the looming deadline. I was driving in the car just the other day and I realised that I felt like I did en route to my first HSC exam. Ridiculous. So I'm paying less attention to the deadlines now and just doing my very best... as calmly as I can.
Good luck with the repair, and second's always the best!

Oh no Bek, how sad :( I have had a similar thing happen with felt although luckily it was on a piece to be sewn onto something so it was alright to cut another and try again. I missed your last post with the dolly and she is just adorable. I think on the next one there really is no nose needed. Good luck!

Noooooo! It's so sad when a project flops at the very end...especially so when it's such a cute one!

I know it's sad, but you should take a pic and send it to me so I can post about it on craftfail. I promise, it will make you feel a teeny bit better! heather at
