In case you run out of felted garlic

You know what? The crochet craze is getting weird now.

Mr. Pointy stuffed vampire stake:


Snout-to-tail neckwear

Says the seller: "He is about 1 1/2 inches from head to rump." It isn't every day someone says that about your necklace. I hope.

Portrait of a know-it-all: A story in three T-shirts

Unless you live in Portland, Scandinavia, or the middle of the Salish Sea (the seller has a helpful 300-word explanation for nonresidents), I would advise against wearing these T-shirts. I say this with love. Just don't.

(ad)just your type

For all you typography geeks out there, the perfect pair of social-life endangering rings.

For the rest of you, there's always Google. Or not. Either way is just fine, really.

Knit your own nudibranch

You know, the soft-bodied, shell-less marine opisthobranch gastropod mollusk, noted for its often extraordinary colors and striking forms. Yes, I Googled it.

I know, everyone's a comedian. But that doesn't change the fact that I hate this card.

The measure of a cozy

There's nothing more unsightly than an uncozied tape measure. With the help of the Tapester, you'll never have to think that sentence again.

Fill 'er up

The seller asks: "Who wouldn't want to keep their essentials in a little felt stomach?"

Like a rock

Seriously. I will never stop loving felted pebbles. It will just never happen.


Let's start with the most obvious question: Three syllables? StumbleUpon

To cutely go...

These just make me happy.

Welcome to my wheelhouse

Friends, this is a bit of a Moment for me. Not since I stumbled upon the Squid Tampon Cozy have I felt as proud to be curating this collection of unusual crafts.

With no further ado, I share with you this Sanitary Napkin Cozy.

I suspect it's all downhill from here, life-wise. StumbleUpon

You have to be there

This bit of glassware mustache humor is sure to give your friends a chuckle -- but only when your pint is half-full, and they're viewing you at just the right moment. As anyone who's been to Stonehenge knows, timing is everything.

Did I miss something?

Here's a vintage item that raises more questions than it answers.

Good news/bad news

The good news: I love this felted hydrangea in acidic-soil blue.


The bad news: It's part of a dog collar, which means I won't be buying it, and kind of makes me question my taste in felted fauna.

Fakin' it

These are challenging times. For example, it's harder than ever to pick just one version of handmade fake bacon.

I checked in with myself, and I think this one will do. It curls, it lies flat, it fits in your pocket, and it's got the right fat-to-meat ratio.
