Ouch! That sounds really painful! D:
Though not nearly as painful, I recently glued my right index finger to my chin with FabriTac. I still don't quite know how I did it! Lol

I've had sewing machine needles break off and hit me in the head, burned myself with hot glue, and jabbed a sewing needle under my thumbnail.
I screamed on that one.

All of these sound so familiar. Except for the screaming bit: I've jabbed myself with needles so much I don't even feel it anymore. It's kinda sad.

I have had so many stupid craft injuries that I've lost count Most of them were silly things like box cutter cuts, pinpricks, jewelry wire poking into my hand, burns from hot glue and picking up a hot pyrography pen by the wrong end (yes, I did that. No, I do not recommend it.) The most awful craft injury I've ever had was related to a dough mixer though.
I was making a chocolate cake, mixing the dough and bending over my pot, when my long hair accidentally fell into the pot and got tangled in the beaters, which were spinning at turbo speed at that time. Miraculously I managed to pull the plug on the device before it actually scraped my head, but the damage was done. When I tried to roll the beaters out of my hair, a lot of my hair (more than 1/4th of it) came along with it, leaving me with a painful and highly conspicuous bald spot.
My hair has long since grown back, but I don't enter the kitchen without it safely tied up anymore!

(My most ironic craft accident was probably when I severely burned my hands on hot glue while trying to fit gemstones in the crown for my Morgoth cosplay. (see profile pic) Anyone who knows a bit about the Silmarillion will know why I was made fun of by all my Tolkien-loving friends for days afterwards)

While cutting the ears off of a MH doll (he's getting new ones from Plastic Curves) I stabbed myself in the finger with my new, very sharp Xacto blade. It didn't go very deep but there's a black spot where it bruised.

I have stabbed myself with needles often (a project isn't complete without at least one stabbed finger) but the worst was under my thumb nail drawing blood that hurt for days.

I covered my hand in hot melted wax whilst making candles once.

I think the worst though was at uni standing on an upturned thumbtack and it embedding itself completely so the top was flush with my heel. Trying to pull it out made me feel physically sick. I phoned my mum in complete panic. She told me all I could do was pull it out which I finally succeeded in doing!

I once stepped on an earring I was trying to make and it went in so that it was flush with my heel. So I know that pain! D: And now I don't play with the "peg" earrings, as I call them.

I recently dropped my hot iron - luckily not on anything fleshy (me or the dogs) - but it did melt a spot on the brand new rug I put in my craft room just the week before Sad

My worst however is still the steel crochet hook incident - a bit traumatizing.  Though I still have the scar from my grandmother's sewing machine needle I put through my thumb when I was 5.  I think about grandmom every time I look at it, and her old Singer Smiley

This was a very, very long time ago in high school. I was old enough to drive myself to school and I was one of the chronically late (still am). Even if I wasn't technically late I was usually rushing in the door at the last second. Well, one day I got up early and got ready. I had so much extra time I decided to make a little dashboard magnet for my car and I superglued a magnet to a small stuffed animal. I also managed to glue all of my fingers on one hand together. The only thing I knew of to get superglue off was nail polish remover. I did not have any so I had to wake up my mother and see if she had any. By the time I got my fingers unglued I was late, of course, and had to ask my mother to write a note. I told her to not include the actual reason so she wrore "freak accident". My teacher then bugged me until I fessed up the actual reason. My fingers were a little raw from the glue but the main injury was to my pride.

Also, I learned that my dashboard was not metal so my little dashboard animal did not stick to it. I should have just superglued it.
