April 24, 2012This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Stylofil Edition
By Betty Crafter
I was doing so well, y’all. It is time to break this crafting block I’ve had and I was trying so hard. I started a knitting project (which is going slowly, but hey – I did start it!) and I happened across this intriguing package at an estate sale last week that I thought would be my ticket out of this slump.
Yes PLEASE! I snapped it up in my eager little paws and headed home to Design*Draw*Write with Thread!
Woooo doggies – look at that squirrel pattern! I will definitely be doing that one first. But only purple and yellow thread? That’s a bit odd… Oh well. I can work with that. So off I headed to Little Betty’s closet to scrounge around for something needing squirrel embroidery. Doesn’t everything need squirrel embroidery? I chose a black t shirt and sat down with my handy Stylofil to actually CRAFT something. I followed the sparse instructions under the lid, which basically amounted to “Draw with the thread like it’s a pencil.” Well folks, I just don’t get it. It did nothing. And I don’t see how it could possibly do anything. Look at this thing!
Doesn’t it seem like there should be a needle to pierce through the fabric and pattern? CRAFT FAIL. Total bummer. I googled and it would appear that I have the only Stylofil in existence. Google did not answer my questions. So much for breaking through my craft block. But I vow to try again! Stay tuned to see if I manage to actually create something next time…
