Bacon Scarf Looks So Real It's Scary!

*SQUEAL* This felted bacon scarf by etsy seller chrischunski is so awesome I was yipping with delight!

This is a fun felted bacon scarf. The loose red, pink, and white merino wool has been welt felted with warm, soapy water and agitated to hold its shape. Nothing is sewn, knitted, or crocheted in this piece, though I did use needle felting to reinforce some spots. (Technically, knitting or crocheting something and then felting is called fulling.) It is a bumpy rectangle bacon shape, and it measures approximately 41” x 9.5” at its narrowest near the middle and 11” at its widest near the ends. It looks like a real slice of bacon, with all the striations of fat and meat. The pictures don't do it justice. If you want, e-mail me and I will try to send you better pictures. It’s like wearing a delicious, delicious work of art! I kind of don’t want to sell it, but I know I can’t prevent it from fulfilling its felted destiny.

Seriously, do a search on “bacon scarf” and look at the other bacon scarves out there. They use a paltry two colors, and they don’t look as realistic as this! Also, those scarves didn’t take hours to make by hand! This literally took me hours. I am so proud of it!

Too bad it's sold out (just earlier today, darn it!) Quick, make more Chris! Link - Thanks Nadja Robot!

the scarf does rule in thought though giants will never rule you crazy chick. i really worry that when you wear the scarf you will no longer able to tell what it is. wrap it, wrap it now what is it... a blood soaked bandage? that dude might be on to something. giant girl is on to nothing. IN other bacon news, it tases really good. I just learned today that a center cut of bacon was when they cut the ends off of bacon where the most fat was. I thought it was closer to the center and maybe better meat, but apparently not. It is just a trimmed piece of bacon. I wonder if maybe this scarf is a center cut piece. I also heard that packaged bacon contains carcinogens while its fresh deli counterpart is not as bad for you. Also, my mother used to cook bacon to the point where it turned into powder. Is anyone here into that type of bacon? (could you imagine using bacon powder on you babys instead of baby powder? wow deep toughts)I am not; my mother is a terrible cook. She is sweet though. She bakes pretty good though. I recently had a conversation (this night) about a theory that either you are good at baking or cooking but not both. God I love bacon and it is so fun to write on a bacon forum.
