This doll looks just as confused as I do.
“Wait, you actually wasted time crocheting this thing and expect me to look happy wearing it? I hope it did warm your heart because it’s leaving me cold. You should probably play with Barbie from now on; I’m not sure we can remain friends.”
Normally I’d be tearing apart a goofy craft scene like this, but not today kids!
I’m actually going to give the shoot director some credit here because this is, hands down, the most thought-out crocheted doll clothes scene I’ve ever seen; and believe you me, I’ve seen my fair share of questionable crocheted doll clothes scenes.
One could argue that there are no dolls of color in the mix, but I’ll save that debate for another day. They DO have the blind fold, the piñata stick AND the colorful piñata burro!
For having fun with the setting and following through with little details, this magazine cover gets a YOU TRIED participation ribbon from Sad Patterns!
Wow, I’ve never seen a rabbit with a camel toe before.
Not sure why a child’s doll needs a name like “Lover Boy,” but who am I to question the wisdom of the Simplicity pattern company.
OOOHH! I love those vintage folded star patterns!
They make fun potholders or trivets or…
… you can let them consume your life and decorate every inch of your kitchen with them.
I’m genuinely surprised she didn’t hang color-coordinated folded star ornaments from the valance.
Oh well, at least she kept it in the kitchen.
Can you imagine these things in the rest of the house?
Knowing the 70’s, I’m surprised they didn’t use ACTUAL pot plants in the cover photo. Because let’s face it, you’d have to be high as a kite to want to make
and display this yarn catastrophe.
It’s probably going to take you the better half of 2 years to finish crocheting this thing, and you’re gonna drip tea on it? Hell, if I spent that long on something that takes a double-ought hook to work up, that thing is getting framed
and hung in the national gallery.
And what contest did this thing win in?
The BORE THE HELL OUT OF PEOPLE WHO CROCHET BY FORCING THEM TO REPEAT THE SAME MOTIF OVER AND OVER AGAIN competition?
