I have no problem with making matching hats because it's your son and you love him, but come on, make him something at least slightly masculine and make something for yourself that matches nicely without strands of yarn hanging off the back like you forgot to sew in your ends!!
If the title is right that it's hats for charity, oh my, come on again...give people something nice if you're going to give it to them as a gift. Yikes...what do they think? Just because it's a charity hat, people will want to wear hideous monstrosities and be all happy about it??

And using yarn that is "gold" coloured won't make it any better either...just look at the close-up if you're unsure.

All I can say about this thing is "ewwww, gross". The ad reads in such a way that it surely will entice any woman:
Hips stretch 32" to 40"
I don't know about you but I seriously love any clothing article that stretches a good 8 inches around my hips. The bust, however, is 32" without any stretch so hey, no room for growth there but no problem, my hips tend to grow without my chest growing anyways...makes total sense...NOT!
I am not even going to "go there" on the model's stance for this dress...it's bordering on crude and is she standing that way to make sure it doesn't slip off? I mean, really, it has so much "give" in the hips, how does it stay on?
You like it? Great, go buy it for $160 US - metallic purple fringe sure is a girl's best friend!

Anyone want to look like Medusa? Go ahead then, get this hat! It only retails for $77 US and for such a small amount of money, seriously, who wouldn't want to? Can't remember who Medusa is? Go ahead and click here! I think I've turned to stone already!
But then again, what am I saying?? Maybe you want to wear the latest "worm" chic on your head and this hat will do just fine to achieve that look too!

Oh my! Someone please call PETA! This has to qualify as unethical treatment of an animal!
If I was walking down the street and saw someone with a dog with a Martha poncho on them, I'd seriously have to think about shooting the owner...why, why, why would you submit your animal to such distress?
I won't even touch on the hideous colours chosen for these dogs or the red bow but when you first look at the picture, you really have to wonder just what the h*ll you are looking at! Do you think these dogs could walk while wearing these? I can see the dog's paws catching in the poncho so easily and then we'd have doggy pile-up! That would have to qualify as cruel for sure!
The proliferation of the Martha poncho is incessant...how can you put it on a dog? What's next? A gerbil? A hamster? A cow? A horse? Come on!! This one really takes the cake!

First question for this would be why and what to say about these? The pictures pretty much sum up the hideousness level of these creations. Not even on a toddler does it look better! May as well time travel back to the 80s for this look...and even then, it wasn't that easy to pull off...what would you wear with this? Your crocheted leg warmers? Even worse, the pattern suggests you fluff the fun fur out of the seam once you've sewn in the ends too...ya, great...let's fluff up the fur because it's not quite furry enough! :|
Both models seem to have that shocked look in their eyes too...I'm sure the baby is thinking, Mommy, why?? whyyyyyyyyy???

Not too sure what to say about these except that sandals usually have a sole to them and what possible function do these serve?
They have a certain cuteness factor to them but still, what's the point? To make your feet look sexy and to turn on your significant other?!
The pattern says that gauge isn't important either...wonder why??!! LOL

I must say, this need to use Fun Fur for EVERYTHING is getting ridiculous! Here's the pattern if you so desire to make these
lovely earrings yourself:
EARRING - make 2 (no sh*t Sherlock on the 2)
Attach yarn around earring hoop, chain 1, single crochet closely and evenly around ring (22 single crochets for 1 1/4" [3 cm] hoop), slip stitch in first single crochet to join. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
All you crocheters out there, since when does 22 single crochets make a pattern? Just how inept do you have to be to finish this pattern and call it a crochet creation? Not to mention just how hideous they are. I swear Fun Fur will do ANYTHING to get their yarn out there and to think you would have to buy at least one ball of Fun Fur to make these earrings too...for 22 single crochets on each ear and that's a grand total of 44 single crochets for a pattern! I wonder just how stupid the Fun Fur establishment thinks crocheters are?
This is embarassing to the whole craft!

Seriously, someone had the audacity to call this thing a "cocktail" hat to dress up any party outfit! I can't help but think cow patty on her head...I mean seriously, if it were brown, wouldn't it conjure up that image a lot more easily? And the furry halo around it doesn't help either...classy cocktail hat? Not!! Can you imagine showing up at a really classy party wearing this and everyone looking strangely at you? I can't quite read her expression either but it sure looks like slight disgust mixed with...
Someone please get this off my head! I know I have to pose for the photo and I'm a model and all, but seriously, I'm about to freak out...get it off my head!

Another really good example of how not to use fun fur...complete with an example of how not to fringe a scarf...what are those anyways? Confetti on string?
I can't help but think a caterpillar is trying to engulf her neck!
What a totally hideous way to compliment what looks like what could make a pretty nice casual look otherwise.
