Pulling this idea from the old site.
Here’s a thread for what didn’t work, including
mistakes experiments that can’t be salvaged (but still learned from), crafting injuries, things that looked way easier on Pinterest, drunk crafting, gross miscalculations, and projects destroyed by pets.
Any “Don’t do what I did” wisdom may help someone else, and maybe that will be the silver living!
It can be any kind of art/craft, I just figured this category was the broadest.
Be mindful that one person’s “fail” may be another person’s best effort: please post things that went truly awry, not just less-than-perfect. As always, post only your own, but links to crafters talking about their own fails are probably fine.
