I know this is an old post...... but... I just HAD to pass a comment on this. (You see, I was looking at newer posts, then going to profiles to see what else you've made! That's how I ended up on this post.) I am sitting here laughing my butt off because I have hair issues too. Mine is too long to deal with and I often resort to a granny bun. Wear a granny bun daily for eight plus hours and after about a week your head will hurt! I have to let your know that you are not the only girl who gets her super long locks into everything. Mine is always in my way when I let it down. I even worry when I use the little girls room that it'll get a bath while I am sitting there doing my business. Taking the trash out is a joy too when your hair is dipping into the ickyness that is the garbage can! So, to cut my long waffle short, no..... you're not the only one ;o)

I have always been fascinated by this phenomena.  I imagine future historians examining the DNA found in handmade goods to reconstruct our lives!
Yes I am weird.

I think the dna can only be found if the root is attached...not 100% sure on that but that's what I gather from watching Criminal Minds.
However, as a student of Ancient History and Archaeology I would love to be able to find out things about the past by hair woven in items...roman purse with hair trapped in it...that would be awesome. XD

I have really short hair and still it gets tangled into my crafting, but even more than that my sisters and moms hair do. They all have longer hair and it get in everything, I don't usually mind unless it shows up too much.

I used to have really long hair. (like, really, really long hair) and it always got sewed into my projects!  I once got my sewing machine jammed because of this!

My mother in law is a borderline obsessvie perfectionist. So when my daughter was tiny and she used to knit and crochet lots of blankets and clothes for her i used to sit there and pick all of the thousands of hairs out of the item in front of her. Really wound her up haha

I can't say I've done this (I always put my hair up so it won't get into my face when I'm sewing) but I have sewed projects into my pants, my couch, my bed, my sister's bed (Shhhh she still doesn't know about that) and my shirts.

I love this post Smiley Good to not feel alone in this issue.

After getting my hair stuck in embroidery too many times, I thought maybe I would do it intentionally... mix a piece of my hair in with the embroidery floss and have "fine copper highlights" as a special touch. (Haven't done this yet).

Thankfully I've never got it caught in sewing, however it *has* fallen in the way of my scissors or rotary cutter while cutting fabric Sad My hair is mid-thigh length. I've also gotten it caught in crochet, tape while wrapping gifts, and wool while using a drop spindle. Ouch.

I can't believe I haven't seen this post before.  I am always fighting the fight against hair.  Not just mine either, but those of my cats.  It doesn't matter if I'm crocheting, knitting or sewing.  If you receive something from me, it probably has my hair in it!  I have also heard that story that it's good luck to sew in a piece of your hair if you're making something for someone you love.  I always tell myself that for comfort.  Cheesy

I had this problem just the other day. I was making fimo roses for a swap and after attaching the last petal I saw a hair sticking straight out of it.  I couldnt pull it out without ripping all the petals off so I snipped it down with nail clippers.
