Sewing Mess Ups

What do you do when you are sewing and you MESS UP?

For me, it depends on the size of the mess up and the amount of stress I am under before the mess up. Sometimes I can keep my cool and figure out what to do with no major upsets. Other times, I ball up what I'm making, stick it in a bag, walk around muttering for a while, and eventually go back to the project. Sometimes it takes months to go back to it, other times just a few minutes.

Something about walking away gives me a chance to calm down and think about something else. Then, when I'm thinking about something else, the solution to fixing the sewing mistake comes to me.

Anyway, after that vague intro, I'll just say my most recent sewing project turned into a big mess up, and I need to get back to my muttering and doing something else so I can figure out how to fix this mess.

So, anyway, what DO you do when you are sewing and you mess up? I would love to hear your ideas if you have a moment to share.

Mid-May Hello

Hi Everyone, I'm sorry I haven't been posting much here lately; had a few things to finish up. As far assewing, most of my recent projects have been repair work... patching jeans, patching an awning, nothing too fun or creative.

I have some projects underway, and read a tutorial on making a ramen noodle package into a change purse (too cute) that I might try.

What have you been working on?
