Had a major material failure on my first item halfway trough. I wonder why this still happens to me although I consider myself a "rather experienced crafter"?!?
It happens to all of us, honestly. And it's part of the learning process and fine tuning techniques, etc. The craft world is so freaking massive...a million different materials and at least that many different techniques. I'm guessing that I will still have successes and failures until the end of my days.
