Poodle Hair Hats

Poodle HatHow many of you think wearing poodle hair on your head is cool and hip? Here’s a great example of what you can do with poodle hair if you spin it up yourself! Lovely isn’t it?

The hat is called “french organic earth faerie“. Have you noticed how people throw in French to describe anything weird to pass it off as stylish? Last time I checked, French people were pretty stylish and that certainly didn’t mean wearing poodle hair on their heads.

In case you really want to know what’s in the hat content, here it is:

handspun poodle (yes, a dog!) [notice the emphasis here…even the maker is shocked it’s actually dog hair], cotton, flax, wool, alpaca, silk noil, ramie, camel [more animal content…yaaa!], copper wire, silver string

Can you imagine the stink if this hat ever got wet?  Oh ya, wet poodle and wet camel is very enticing that’s for sure.

For a mere $99 US this hat is a steal for anyone who wants to buy it!

Capes

CapeWell, unless of course you’re a super hero of some type and need one to put over your spandex super suit… And to accessorize the cape, it’s always a great idea to put on a holey hat with a big honkin’ flower on the side of it that looks like it’s eating your face.

When was the last time you saw a cape and jeans together? Unless you’re wearing a onesy spandex suit underneath it, pretty much nothing else goes with a cape…that’s just reality folks!

Regal Red & Purple

Red & PurpleSince when does red and purple rule?  Can you believe this pattern leaflet?  And you can make 9 absolutely regal designs too…oh ya, for sure…because red and purple are the BEST colours to put together…NOT! 

Here’s the description for the pattern leaflet:

Indulge in a little red and purple yarn, the brighter the better, and create absolutely regal crochet designs for yourself and your wanna-have-fun friends! Start with a wardrobe of red hats — we’ve included three charming styles. One even has a matching tote bag. Fling one of the three fun and easy scarves around your neck and you’ll be fabulous! And if you really want to feel like you reign over the world, make a Royal Scepter and be in command at all your royal gatherings. Proudly wear your red and purple splendor — you deserve it!

Bright red and purple to make you regal and to feel like you’re reigning over the world?  Okay, puke…and then make yourself a sceptor and proudly wear your red and purple splendor?  Oh my!  And if that’s the sceptor she’s holding in the picture, she better be careful…looks a tad like a witch in a red & purple hat!  And that is definitely regal!

Creepy Clown Toys

Creepy Clown Toy

The pattern for this creepy little guy reads as follows:

“This classic toy has enchanted generations of babies!”

I don’t think the essence of this toy was captured in that sentence so I’d like to re-write it to the following:

“This classic creepy toy has enchanted scared the crap out of generations of babies!”

I only have one warning if you give this as a gift to a new Mom: cover your ears and take cover…I’m sure she’s going to shriek and throw it across the room!
