Dread Pirate Sam

This whole crochet amigurumi thing has really exploded lately and granted, there are some really cute ones out there and well-made ones but this one scares the be-jeebers right out of me! It is pretty creative, I’ll give the designer that but it’s all about the finer details when deciding what’s good or bad amigurumi. Some of those finer details that pushed it over the edge:

  • Buttons for eyes – tacky.
  • Strings hanging off the belt – tacky.
  • Two strands of who knows what in the hair – tacky.
  • Weird drawn on mouth – tacky.

Some of you may like it and that’s okay too – the pattern will be for sale soon if you’re interested.
