No clowning around


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.”


Fiesta… forever…


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!

Blown to bits and pieces


“Happy birthday! I crocheted you a floating crayon wizard, the head of a decapitated clown, two leprechauns being held at gun point against a bowl, some Christmas things, the ugliest basket in the world and some flowers in a vase. ENJOY!!”

In the club


I have some questions for you, pattern book:

Is the cigar for the creepy-faced bunny? If so, why?

What the Hell is the laughing baby holding? Is that a hot dog in a tampon?

Who killed the clowns, and where are their bodies?

Are those cars or space ships?

I eagerly await your answers.
