Well, I don’t know about you, but this has definitely been one of my weeks to fail. The force of jetlag was strong, but I tried to ease myself back into sewing with a make-up bag, using this tutorial. I’ve used it before, but had total brain fail around the boxed corners. I now have a make-up bag with diagonal corners. Failure number one. I tried to photograph this failure, but winter days led to blurred, grey photos. Failure number two.
Not A Failure
Then I cut out and sewed a third Ultimate Shift dress. Tried it on. Too tight! So tight that the back seam ripped as I took it off. Third fail. Tried to photograph the ripped seam, but poor light hit again. Fourth fail.
By this stage, I was actually failing to blog about my failures. Fifth fail.
WHAT A FAILURE!
Failure is a theme I’ve often discussed here, but it can’t be emphasised enough. If you choose to create, you choose to fail. It’s always going to be part of the process, and a wise person builds failure into their business model, their hobby and their life.
We’re agreed then? I must be very wise indeed. So wise that I’d never actually share a blurred photo of a disastrous make. I mean, that would make me … a failure?
Please tell me you’ve had more success this week. Actually, scrap that. I want to hear about your failures!
