Pinterest Challenge #2

I know, I know... I am getting behind with the Pinterest Challenge. Good thing is I still have until the 2nd of April to get all my pinspirations done. 

Here's, again, the pictures of the 6 pins I chose to make. Last week I crossed number 5 out of the list, and this week I am crossing number 2 |and in a few hours I hope I'm able to cross number 1 too|. 
So, this week's challenge item was the mobile cover for V. I consider it a small failure for me. My pin did have a tutorial, but guess what? again I was too lazy to follow it. I just looked at the images. 
Why the hell do I enjoy doing things on my own and then don't be pleased with the results? Why, when there is a nice tutorial to just follow? I don't get it, but well... I guess I learn from it and improve, that's the only reasonable thing I can think about. 
For G's shorts on the Sew In Tune Challenge, I have recycled a pair of V's jeans. Apparently he loved these particular pair and was deeply sad that they weren't wearable anymore. 
I could see how happy he was to see them turned into a pair of shorts for his daughter, so, since I still had most of it left, I thought it'd be a good idea to use them for a new mobile bag for him. 
I have made him 3 already, this is the fourth. One of them was a complete failure, and I even blogged about it here. The problem back then was the sizing, and since I can't blame it on having a newborn anymore, I have no excuse this time. ahahah 
What went wrong here? I wanted to add a zipper pouch, and I wanted to add a metallic button. I wanted to line it all and I wanted to stuff it because he's so caring with his mobile, sometimes I think he loved it better than he loves me. 
Too much fabric, jeans are thick, so it didn't get as pretty as I hoped. Missing the linning before adding the button was another no excuse situation. Maybe I should get some more sleep. Really! It's the second project that goes wrong in a row, and I start to worry. 
This will be his Father's Day present next tuesday, together with something I am working on with G. That's exactly his day off of work, so I have to think of something to do together, and maybe prepare her faverouite desert or a cake. I want to surprise him, he still doesn't know I made the mobile bag, so we haven't tried it on yet. 
missed it?!

  1. I just had a total fail. It sucks when you work so hard on something for it to come out as anything but awesome. But knowing one more way not to do something is just one step closer to learning to do it right!

    1. That's right. It wasn't completely ruined but wasn't as perfect as I'd like it to be.

  2. Well it may not have turned out how you liked, but I do like the way the faded parts on the jeans look. Better luck next time!

  3. Ooh, I've got some of those projects. Where you try and try and try again, and it still doesn't quite work out. I think it looks great though! I love the fading on the denim.
    Thanks for linking up!

    1. Thanks Heather. Daddy loved that I used his old jeans, just like I knew he would.
