Okay, so I must preface my chosen title for today. I am not reviewing them, showing you how to use them, or god-forbid, make them.
I accidentally made something that unintentionally resembles a tampon. Not cute.
I must start my story at the beginning though.
I wanted to make this pin for my friends son. But I didn't want to use plain ribbon like this one has. I wanted to use fabric and fill it with stuffing so that it puffed up just like the laces on a real football. Great idea in theory right? SURE!
Well not so much.
It was sewn, flipped, and stuffed with stuffing!
But I have a trick!
pillow as I have done before. Since the chopstick is long and thin it should reach all of the way to the bottom.
It was sewn shut. Not the greatest but sealed.
I placed it for a picture and then I got worried. I looked at it and realized...
A tampon. It was about the length and width of a freaking tampon. Not what I was going for.
I decided to give it a shot. Maybe once it was sewn on the shirt it wouldn't look so much like a period plug.
To top it off I ripped one of the snaps of the onesie out. Well at least the other two still work....
I ended up being so frustrated that I gave up for the night. I decided to put it away and think how I could save it. I still don't want just boring ribbons...
It has been over a week since I have tried to work on it and I still am stumped. Hopefully a genius idea will hit me soon.
Just thought you would get a kick out of my poor foresight.
