I did that once. Except I tried doing it on foam with a stencil that took me nearly an hour to cut out. I figured, hey! nail polish would be really cool, and already varnished!

I often times get ahead of myself and sew what I should be sewing LAST first.  For example sewing the body of a bag before ever putting pockets, zippers, snaps or anything in... I have so many useless half-bags because I started sewing up too early...

I have concluded that CONCENTRATION is the key to happy crafting.  I'm making a wallet right now and I'm being extra careful to think ahead and not ruin it.  I ruin and never finish at least 85% of the stuff I make... no, more.  I seem to have many, many crafty ideas that end up not working as well as they do in my head.

By the way, I never liked your face.

Not very crafty, but here's a nail polish horror stories.

I was painting my nails while I was on the computer in my dad's new house.  The nailpolish happened to be pretty expensive and also sparkly black, so when i moved to type it spilt all over the carpet.   Sad  So then I got the brilliant idea to use nail polish remover, making the stain grayer- except it spread big time.  Finally I took the scissors to it and cut off the top of the carpet and my dad never noticed it.   Lips sealed

Fortunately I have ducked the nail polish difficulties, but one of my earliest crafting mishaps involved parafin wax.  I was something like 9 or 10 and I was not supposed to be playing with the stuff, but we had been making firestarters in girl scouts and the supplies were all over the house, including a can of parafin on the stove for melting.  So I got some molds (dixie cups mostly), put some toys in them, and was just getting ready to pour the wax into the molds when I heard my mom coming up the stairs.  I panicked and dumped the wax down the kitchen sink.  I couldn't understand why it wasn't going down, so in a panic as my mom got closer, I ran cold water, not realizing that that would turn the wax in the drain into a solid chunk.  My parents were SO mad.

Well I just learned something new!  I made my nephew a hemp beaded necklace.  I thought, "Instead of the loop & bead closure, I'll do a nice metal closure."  Yeah, good idea there!  Instead of going to get the clear nail polish (nail polish HAD to be included somehow!) I decided to use Super Glue to keep the ends of the knots from fraying.  What I didn't know is that hemp and Super Glue have a weird end result.  The hemp started to smoke and the metal finishings got really hot!  When all was said and done, the hemp had big hard lumps of glazed looking knots.  Not my best idea!

One time i thought it would be a good idea if i tried mixing my own nail polish shade from different nail polishes i already had. urgh. i dumped in different colors from just about every polish i had and it was some weird purpley silvery sparkly looking junk. it was so thick. i tried painting my nails with it and the color wouldnt smooth over, my nails just looked streaky and purple. so when i was done my nails where at least a half inch thicker with nail polish! lol. and trying to clean it? Shocked oh wow, what a mess. the sink had purple stains in it and the sink knobs tacky with polish! not one of my finer moments.
 man this thread is hilarious! love it.
once my friend had some black spray paint and we were going to spray some cardboard and put our hand prints in it. i was thinking, im so not putting my hands in all that paint! but something must have just not clicked in my friends mind because she stuck her hands in it all. so glad i didnt do that. oh man she couldnt get it off and so we grabbed this WHOLE bottle of nail polish remover and she tried to scrub it off. it just smeared all over her arms and hands. lol. her hands and arms were all gray. it was so funny, well not for her but...... lol.

I can't believe I forgot about this!

I was hemming up a dress, and was sitting on my bed watching TV. I was hand sewing it (I'm not a huge fan of sewing machines). This dress was absolutly perfect. I gathered it and climbed down (loft bed). I picked it up, and felt this incredible tugging sensation on my leg. I look down, and I had not only gone through a pair of jeans, but also into my skin. I can't feel pain on my thighs, and I hadn't even relized that it was sewed onto my legs. I have scars from the stiches.
