Pinterest Fail: Loom Me Up a Hula Hoop Hat

Well, while Pinterest is deeply diverting, there is a strong element of “Buyer Beware” involved in some of the postings. Craft ideas that look awesome are evidently photographed and performed by professional artisans; it’s also possible that I am incompetent. I submit to you as evidence:

Hula Hoop Rug

A fail story by Anonyvox,

I had seen the hula hoop rug idea in the Disney Family Fun magazine (which is a GREAT magazine if you have kids under 10 in the house–lots of rainy day activities in there).

I have half a dozen hula hoops of varying sizes (because I am a badass hula hooper, believe it or not) and Mr. Vox has plenty of t-shirts to cut up for scrap, so I have made this project twice.

Item #1: Rice Paddy Rug

The first time, I wove the shirts WAY too tightly, so I have a sort of Asian-inspired rice paddy hat made out of t-shirts. It’s not too useful.

Item #2: The Rug Bowl

I made another one last week, and while it is better, it is still kind of bowl-shaped. I don’t know what you could do to fix it, frankly.

Or should I call it: The Fail So Nice, I Nailed It Twice.
