I can't believe I just ironed felt with an iron set to cotton. Instantly melts acrylic felt into a solid piece of plastic all over said iron. Most came off, but getting the rest off will require work.

I did something similar the other day: ironed reflective iron-on tape on the cotton setting instead of whatever the lowest one is. I still haven't been able to get all the plastic off either.

I just snipped the fabric when I intended to snip the thread (I just hope it doesn't fray too badly i nteh wash).

I'll also share one from a while ago, I can't believe I sewed a whole seam with a needle bent so badly that it was hitting the plate instead of the whole.  I did so much damage to my sewing machine and still haven't gotten it fixed...

kjlutz - Fray Check will save it!  
Dab a little bit on and let it dry before you wash the fabric.  It won't be too funny or stiff, since enough tends to come out during the wash but enough stays in to keep the thread intact.  I kept a pair of work pants that I tagged with my carpet knife going for over a month that way.  GREAT stuff.  It doesn't hurt colors either, as I mainly use it to help secure cross stitch tails.


A little bit ago I was trying to cut my bead thread while still holding the beaded peace, and ended up snipping into the side of a finger.  That wasn't fun- but I didn't get blood on the project!  That was the same project the scissors slipped on and I ended up having to redo by more than half.  The finger slice was finishing part 2.  I called that one The Snowflake of Doom.   Grin

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I can't believe I just stabbed THROUGH my thumbnail! I thought I just poked myself with it but I noticed it was bleeding a second ago. At least I didn't get blood on my swap partner's item!

 I have another one that happened today.

I can not believe I have been hand sewing everything for months because I though my sewing machine was broken, to find out it was because 2 of my bobbins where burred.

I am sorry for yelling at you Ellie the sewing machine.
