Woops of the day

So today I said to myself, "Hey why don't you make a snazzy belt for that plain, black dress with no waist that you want to wear tonight with those amazing new shoes? One that'll stay in place despite the lack of belt loops?"

After rummaging through my fabric stash, a light bulb went off when I pulled out the mint green, buttery-soft vinyl.

When I was finally done agonizing over its measurements, I slapped some iron-on velcro in the appropriate spots and was finished. Simple, eh?

But, OH CRAP: I accidentally used my iron straight on my newly de-virginized cutting mat! I craptastically did a touch up ironing without putting my table top ironing board back underneath the work. Now I got me a couple of iron impressions in the mat:


So I'm reminded once again: "Simple" doesn't really ever exist for me.

I was too miffed to try to iron it back out. Will probably try tomorrow. More disappointment came tonight, in the form of a sudden major lack of plans. So the culprit belt (or the fantastic shoes) won't even be worn as intended. Ah well.

At least I'm back on this blog. I think the craft world needs to hear more from the non-superstar crafter world. Where things don't go as planned and online stores slump and countless hours are spent oohing and ahhing at other crafters. Plus I need a kick in the ass, motivation-wise. I hope this helps more of the myriad ideas in my head reach fruition.

Now, on to tortellini and beer!
