When good crafts go bad

Lately Ive been on a blog kick for blogs featuring crafts gone wrong. It started with Fail Cakes but now thanks to my friends Ive learned of several other blogs featuring adventures in domesticity that dont quite turn out as planned.

Why Would You Knit That

This blog explores all the things people knit that probably shouldnt be knitted. Because you know, knitted candy corn pasties are just oh so sexy.

What Not To Crochet

This blog is much like the previous one but for those of us who yield one stick instead of two.

What Not To Craft

Because yarn shouldnt get to have all the fun in failing this site to highlights all sorts of crafts and cooking ventures gone horribly horribly wrong. Or horribly horribly right? Felted Jesus is kind of totally awesome.

Craft Fail

Another hilarious site for people to show off all their failed craft projects. Not all of them are fails in my mind…this failed attempt to make a pink parsley flecked soap resulted in something amazing…SPAM soap!

Anyone else have any links to blogs that feature failed crafts? Post them up in the comments! Or share your own craft failures!

    so i don’t have a picture — but a craft related secret i’ve been keeping for a long time is that my grandma taught me to crochet when i was twelve so i’d blow balloons up and crochet around them to make… hacky sacks. hmm, maybe that’s not wild or major bigtime fail in itself — but i actually took them to school to show my guy friends thinking they’d be totally stoked. instead i was met with, “fag!” and a fist to the jugular. i never crocheted again.

    Uh – the people behind What Not to Crochet having nothing to do with What Not To Craft.

    We laugh at/with them for sure…

    But we ain’t them!

    I think you might like my site, too ;)


    it gets updated daily, unlike some of the blogs you mentioned that seem to have stopped updating years ago, sadly.
