I'm into vintage feeling stuff. I like traditional crochet afghans and some of the traditional quilt patterns like grandmother's flower garden. But this?
This frightens me on a whole new level...
There's chatter on Ravelry about a crocheted potholder swap. I'm thinking about joining. Do I need potholders? Hell no. But it looks like fun and from the photos that people are posting, they are pretty darn cool. Plus it would be something different so off I went looking for inspirational patterns that I could work with. I did not expect to find this horror:
Yes, my friends. That is a potholder with a plastic baby doll face attached in the center.
Aside from my issues of always whining that the creepy dolls give me nightmares while they stare vacantly at me (I suspect they are plotting different ways to suck out my soul when I'm not paying attention), does this strike anyone as incredibly sadistic?
I'm sure (I hope) these are meant to be decorative only but suppose someone decides they need to be functional? That means they are willingly melting the doll face under excruciating heat and torture. (Which I'm not entirely opposed to, they are creepy as all get out and we have to get our revenge somehow.)
I am going to take a break from looking at the potholder patterns for a bit. Who knows what other horrors may be lurking there...
