How to Fail: Boho Charger turned Boho Bowl
I do a lot of DIY projects. Some of those projects turn out super awesome and some... don't. When a DIY project fails don't be discouraged. Most of the time it can be reworked with a little positive thinking, determination, and a couple white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. To encourage reworking failures here is the second installment of a semi-accidental series I'll call "How to Fail". This was inspired by a post I did in 2011 titled: How to fail at a DIY, but still make something cool.
- When beginning the center of charger do several rows of embroidery floss first, then move to yarns or trims. I thought the middle of mine look sloppy because I didn't do any floss.
- Watch the weaving. Multiple times I got out of rhythm without even realizing it. The bowl still looked cool, but the yarn base is supposed to stay on the bottom.
- Maybe stringing the loom base with embroidery floss would be better. I did yarn first, and while I did like that it was easy to see and maneuver, my knots at the end were glaringly obvious. Also, when I did get out of rhythm my yarn was obvious. It probably could have been better masked with floss.
- If making a charger, DO NOT TIE FINISHING KNOTS SUPER TIGHT.
- If making a bowl, TIE FINISHING KNOTS SUPER TIGHT.
