My roomba ate my veil

Recommended Posts

I am not sure how it did it but it did. There are now 2 good sized holes in my veil. Any suggestions on how to fix it? The only thing that I have come up with is a few small stiches to close it up. It is custom made and there is no time/money to buy another one. I was thinking about cutting it and making it shorter but then I lose all my beadwork. I was expecting some things to go wrong, but not this!!

i'd stitch it up. it probably won't be noticable. veils are so wispy anyway that you don't get a good look at them

 

bad roomba, bad!

Awww...sorry to hear that. Stitching sounds good. Why not try it & see what happens. Are the holes in a noticeable place? Like are they at the bottom of the veil, near the sides, etc?

Did you order it online? If not, can you take it to the person who made it & see what they can do? Or what about a seamstress?

Again, sorry to hear that but I'm sure you'll work it out.grouphug.gif

I think the roomba needs a timeout!

Oh no!!! This post title absolutely cracked me up tho, I must admit. I'm sorry about your veil! Darn technology!!!

 

Oh geez, I must've skipped over the part about it being custom made. Shoot!! Can you take it in to your seamstress and see what she can do?? Good luck hun!!

Thanks for the suggestions. I was trying to avoid housework by getting some robot to do it for me. I guess that was it's revenge. I am waiting for my mom to come over and look at it. I am feeling more confident that I can put in a few stitches and close up the hole. It is towards the bottom left. I was thinking of sewing more beads to cover it up but then I will have to do more on the other side to even it out. I told my good friend and she laughed so hard she couldn't speak. I was so excited for the roomba when I go it last month but it is like a child, you can't leave it alone or else it can get into some trouble. It does love to play hide and seek too. I just bought it with gift cards from my shower...hoping to make my life easier. hahaha

It is so true! Our roomba once ate up all of these cords. I almost spanked it.

I hope you can get your veil fixed.

Haha, I laughed too!! But hey, think of this. At least one thing goes wrong, and be happy it was a small thing like a veil and not tripping while you walk down the aisle!! (knocks on wood)

ooo... BAD rhumba!

I am so sorry! I would definetely try stitching it. They have that clear thread..that would probably work best.

 

Good luck!! I am sure that once you fix it; noone will notice.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
