Norman Batesmato

Ahhh yes, time for another Psychotic Tomato to join the Monster Crochet fold.

Meet Norman Batesmato!


Average small motel proprietor by day (proud owner of the Batesmato Motel). Green, psychotic, wig-donning, mother-channeling Tomato by night!

Norman is aware that he's got issues for he blacks out several hours per night several times a week. In an effort to seek answers to his conundrum, Norman has been to endless hours of psychotherapy, subjected himself to a battery of psychological tests and MRI's and even tried taking sleeping pills only to find himself again, awakened somewhere on the motel grounds, dirty, disheveled, wearing a wig that looks distinctly like the one his mother wore in her golden years while sporting an ax as a hairpin, confronted by yet another disappearance of one of the motel's guests. Very curious indeed.

Norman is determined to find others who suffer from a plight similar to his in the hopes that he can gain an understanding of his disturbing affliction. So far he's only been able to find one other Tomato interested in speaking with him and he has a meeting scheduled with this Tomato, Professor Rojo, at a local coffee shop on Tuesday...

Speaking of Professor Rojo...He is looking for new recruits and wants to open up Psychotic Tomato production to all! So, go here to print out your FREE Monster Crochet Psychotic Tomato Pattern and get started. Then, send me a pic of your Tomato Terrorist and a short description so that I can post all of the Terribly Twisted Tomato Recruits together on their own page. It'll be fun and I will link back to you so that you can take full credit for your Tough Tomato Creation!

I have a totally cool idea for my tomato! I just hope I can figure out how to accomplish it! I may consult you for some help.

Oh, my stars. Cousin Normie in tomato. How will I ever get any of my own stuff done!?! I must make Norman. I wish I had a rocker. I'm feeling an urge to sit in a rocker and crochet.

When you think 'Norman', does the little voice in your head imitate Tony Perkins? Tell me I'm not alone...

Renee said...

Interestingly enough, I just finished a true crime novel about the man who was the "inspiration" for Norman Bates. I'm definitely up to making a psycho tomato!

Jaye said...

Oh this is just excellent! You are a creative genius ;)

JANNIKINZ said...

Totally awesome. I am going to start making my tomato today. Thankyou so much.

Thanks for the pattern! I may use it as my first crochet project in 20 years - guaranteed to look psychotic!

Norman and Mother are perfect - all that's needed is a tiny fly.

Vera said...

Great stuff! Thanks for sharing the tomato pattern!

Briana said...

I. Am. So. Excited. I am on my way to SFTH right now because in my box of 200 crochet hooks there is apparently not one in a size B. Not one. Dude, you rock.

Kimberly said...

Micky said...

Oh another pattern! Thank you.
Well it will have to be after the Olympics. So that gives me a bit to come up with something truly wicked.
Love the Norman.

we had a stint where we didn't get our bills, and sadly, they don't forgive you. they just never showed up. ever. and we had a different mailman everyday so they didn't even know who it was.

nextly, i think you should make wigs for people to wear, wig hats. the wigs you make for your veggies are so fucking cute. i cannot bear it...i am exploding with cuteness.

Rebecca said...

Very cool! I love it.

Rebecca said...
