Perky Pom Hats

Ha ha!  Gotta love a hat with what looks like slugs dangling off the top of your head!  It actually wouldn't be too bad of a hat if you removed those weird things off the top portion of this hat.  Not sure what they are supposed to represent or how they are supposed to make this hat nicer?  It looks like a mistake to me…how are those things hanging anyways?  Are they crocheted right into the hat or added later?  Yikes!

Thanks to Christy for pointing this one out!

Tissue Box Covers

Of any kind really…including this one! I have never quite got the point of them…why would you want to cover up your tissue box? Is it that hideous that it needs to be covered? Or is it just an excuse to crochet something simple?

And yes, it is off Annie's Attic again…just to save you the click… 🙂

Wow, I haven't posted a mat before on this site but this one is just about right! Is it a bath mat or what? Another winner from Annie's Attic.

In fact, here's the link…may as well just go there from now on because they pretty much write this blog daily:

Annie's Attic – Pattern of the Day

Don't believe me? Seriously, check it out on any given day and you'll be sure to run into something that should be posted here.

Thanks Mary for submitting this one!

Week-Ender Jacket

I don't know what to say about this one except my eyes hurt. Even seated, you can see that it's adding bulk around her middle. Imagine the boxy-ness of this jacket if she were standing – not exactly a flattering look!

I don't even want to think about just how long it'd take to make all those colour changes throughout too…just not worth it for this end result.

Thanks again to WNTC readers for pointing out yet *another* Annie's Attic pattern of the day.

Feline Monitor Perch

LMAO! First of all, the name?? What is that? Feline Monitor Perch…hmmmm, say it again…Feline Monitor Perch….just how *exactly* do you crochet a "perch"? And why not just say a cat instead of a feline?? Fancy words does not make it better! LOL

Ah well, anything to sell a bit of yarn and to have a "pattern of the day"….LOL  Annie's Attic has outdone themselves once again!

Thanks to Daenna & Tricia for pointing this one out!

Beaded Bag Sets

Especially when it's a free pattern only available for one day! Here's a hint…if a pattern can't last more than a day, you really better scratch your head and wonder if it's worth it or not!!

In case you're wondering, these are a water bottle bag, cell phone bag and a palm pilot pouch with huge beads hanging off them. If the beads are bigger than the bags, uh, you better re-think that concept too. Yikes!

Patriotic Tops

Oh gosh, no no no no no no no no…this is so wrong. First it's in fugly acrylic then the stars are all distorted and look like starfish. Then there's the colour choices…oh my!

Cruel and unusual punishment for this teenager… A one shoulder design too…no no no…it's just not right. So wrong in so many ways.

Quick and easy? How about quick and tacky?
