This is obviously one of the potholders that didn’t work out. When it happens, I either realize it right away or get the whole thing done before I know it just doesn’t work. Sometimes I know it won’t work but I just keep at it hoping I’ll feel differently about it when I get done. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t.
This Everyday Goddess’s eyes were wrong from the beginning. Then when I tried to fix them I turned her into the walking (or dancing) dead. It’s actually very telling how important the eyes are. The thing is, I was having so much fun making her. Her hair looked great, and her shoes… they were the first ones I made with laces. But as much as I liked them (I’ve found that I like doing their hair and shoes most of all, I’m beginning to become the stereotype of a girl, something I never saw myself as) those Zombie eyes just turned it all bad. She looks crazed instead of dancing for joy.
But I’m not ready to trash her yet, I’m not sure why, it may be her enthusiasm. She does have personality, even it it is creepy.
