Would Not Craft

0 Posted by - August 18, 2012 - DIY & Crafts, Quotes & Memes, Women's Apparel

I like to craft. There, I said it. And there aren’t too many things I wouldn’t craft. I mean, really, all a craft has to do is give me a tiny, tiny indication that I might have a chance, and then my self-esteem becomes dependent upon actually doing that craft, as quickly as possible and without regard for the consequences.

Also, I just like crafts– all kinds of crafts. They all have some redeeming quality, and I usually see that first, before I see any of the warning signs or red flags, even if my friends tell me. It’s a failing, compounded by the fact that I sometimes drink-and-craft.

But, there are a few things even the Pintester would not craft.

Original craft by Wobisobi. Original meme by who-the-fuck-knows.

    I love this.  Just like those ridiculous stores that pin their shirts in the back of the mannequin, so you think it’s going to be a cute form fitting shirt when in reality it’s a potato sack.

    Haha! I love this! Hope you do a lot more “would not craft” break-downs! I see some DIY things on Pinterest and just laugh at the absurdity.

    I have to say I have a few t-shirt fails too! Apparently you can make a wedding dress out of t-shirts if you really wanted to!

    I actually just tried this last night it was too small of a shirt so I was looking at something else to make.

    Sewing dress form thing is a definite red flag. Plus the end result doesn’t even look that great on a perfectly shaped faux-human so it is therefore guaranteed to make my stretch-marked lumpy guts look lumpier.
