Frugalfish Failure…Do Not Try This At Home!

I was inspired last week by a blog from He bravely posted a picture of a mistake he made. I have to admit I try some things and they don’t always work!

Here is my most recent failure. I was disgusted with the wrinkled pocket flaps on my husband shorts.  It was the only part of the shorts that needed ironing and I don’t particularly enjoy ironing.











So I got out some facing that is used to make fabric stiff on shirt collars.










I cut out pieces to fit under the flap.










I ironed them to the flap.










And thought I would never iron those flaps again.










I was wrong. After one washing the flaps were not only just as wrinkled, but it looked like he had dryer sheets stuck in his pockets. Luckily, I was able to rip them off before he went out the door.

Like I said, DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!!!
