Sad Etsy Boyfriends is a Tumblr dedicated to the men who model their girlfriends' crafty creations on Etsy. So far, its founder has tracked down 23 pages worth of "wretched creatures abused for economic gains by their Etsy girlfriends," many of whom are sporting hand-knit caps or screen-printed T-shirts. One of our favorites is at right. [Sad Etsy Boyfriends]
