Crafting Fail of the Century

9 Sep

It’s hard for me to know what to say here.  There are some folks out there who should just back away from the craft table…ya know what I mean?  The “crafter” of the product shown above is one of those people.

And what exactly IS this botched crafty craft craft?  A mitten?  Mmm…no.  A sock?  Mmm…no.  A kilt gone awry?  Mmm…no no NO.  I want you to brace yourself here.  Go empty your bladder, have prayer and devotions and come on back.

*crickets*

Okay.  You ready?  Okay.  Craft Fail of the century…..(drumroll puhlease)….

REUSABLE HYGIENE PRODUCT…(MAXI PAD)…MADE FROM OLD PAJAMA PANTS AND TOWELS.

You puked a little in your mouth, didn’t you?  It’s okay.  I came a bit unglued myself after realizing what I was looking at.  Then I started thinking….what exactly IS the process here?  At what point did these women look at each other and say, “Our planet is in peril.  We must go forth and sew maxi-pads.  Women unite!”

I thought maybe this particular craft-fail was one in a million.  You know…a lone weird wolf who was out to save the world.  But then Google informed me that I was sadly mistaken.  Turns out there’s an intensely devoted underground movement dedicated to the production, distribution and marketing of reusable feminine hygiene products.  I have no doubt that I’ll receive hate mail after I publish this post, condemning my wonton ways and irresponsible reporting.  Not to mention my complete lack of  a conscience. Would it be out of line if I replied, “Don’t get your panties ‘n pads in a wad!”?

If you think I’m lying, here’s hard-core evidence.  (I’m kinda partial to the Cupcake Maxi myself.)

    Okay, I’m not usually one to shoot the messenger but I’m considering unsubscribing from your blog for this.

    Erg, erg, erg.

    I initially thought that top picture was a pair of sandals for people with leprosy.

        You need to pull yourself together and have a cup ‘o tea.

    People have officially lost their minds. If the Earth is going to dry up and die because of my maxi pads – then it is already over.
