*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!
