Most of what I'm doing on this dollhouse is new stuff to me, taking crafts that I've played with before (like crocheting) and adjusting them to work with a dollhouse. The only things I've crocheted before are lap quilts in a simple straight lined weave. I decided this time I would attempt a circular weave for the pillow cases. Lets just say it didn't work - but out came a pretty cute looking hat small enough for Barbie.
So when a cut goes wrong, the paint spills, or something seems to horribly go awry take a step back and try to see it as something else. What could this be used for? Could you adjust a few things and have it work out in a different way? Being flexible is one of the most important things when working on crafts.
