It’s a bit chilly out. Can someone fetch me my giant soiled Kotex?

Eww it’s like she wrapped a used maxi pad around her shoulders and spilled blue Kool-Aid on it.
Sadly, some pads these days have that blue “absorbent core” ring. It’s a dead ringer.
Shows how often I use pads.
Oh, honey, if you use really cold water that will wash right out! Club soda is also a great stain remover for blood; baking soda, too.
Did anyone else look at this and think “Fight Club”? Or rather, “Jane Austen’s Fight Club”.
Correct “Fail Felt Shawl”.
Do I really have to pick out of the trash?
Suddenly craving bacon…
I was going to say the same thing. I think it looks positively bacon-esque.
…but cooked first.
Had the same thought!
Ah, you beat me to it
Man I was gonna say something about being bacon wrapped but alas I was beaten.
Hm bacon maxi pads. It could sell.
I read that as: it could smell. Gah.
instead of those embarrassing odors, now you can smell like bacon!
Yes, but can you change the size of the smell?
Yes, if you wear it long enough…
Excuse me while i coax my olfactory memory out from under the bed… But that did make me crack a smile.
A bacon strip for the bacon strip
Soooo cute! Reminds me of something The Borrowers might wear.
VICTORY! Period started = I’m not pregnant. Why not celebrate it in a big way?
It does have an Olympics feel; I guess that event would be called the 15 day panic.
Egg & Poon Race, anyone?
What part of this exactly is translucent?
When you hold it up to your eyes, you can see a cloudy red dawn.
Wow, it combines menstrual blood and the blue stuff they use in the maxi pad commercials!
Honestly my first thought was of a Spanish Dancer nudibranch:
But im a nerd that way.
You’re a nerd in a great way.
Waiting for Knitibranch to comment right here…
Ah, the most fearsome of internet sea creatures: The Great White Nerd
More fearsome than the FJL?
There is some overlap in the two groups, to be fair.
Two closely-related species separated by an ocean of derp.
I just spent 15 minutes finding this without knowing that name. Dammit!
This one is better.
That first one is still super cute though!
When I taught intro bio for non majors during grad school, i loved talking about nudibranchs and showing photos and video of them. So many students had never heard of them before and were just as blown away by their colors and beauty as I am everytime I see one ;D
Thank you! That still picture didn’t tell me much; the creature is so much more beautiful in motion, and I’d never heard of it before. You’ve added a bit of wonder to my life today.
You would think “flying carpet of the sea” would have gotten me something useful on Google, but no. I didn’t think to try “undulating used maxipad of the sea”, though. Or “sea bacon”.
I wish I could give you more thumbs up for “sea bacon”
You’d be surprised at how many nudibranch admirers there are out there . . . just check out Pinterest if you don’t believe me.
And I think I love you
Aaw! I can’t see these babies without supplying a David Attenborough voice-over! And a cut to Nautilusses (nautili?) bobbing along…
Just glad I wasn’t the only one to see a nudibranch.
Also, now an hour has been wasted watching various undersea vids. Thanks, Regretsy!!
Regretsy is terrifyingly educational.
The major difference between a nudibranch and that “shawl” is that I’d wear a nudibranch.
Only $60 for a bulky, stiff, scratchy, pile of wool that looks like I bled on it? WHERE’S MY CREDIT CARD?
I’m still waiting to see something felted that looks comfortable, beautiful and unlikely to disintegrate in a heavy mist. It seems like so much freaking work…for ugly useless shit.
Of course I’ve got some crochet projects that fit the “Effort > Result” criterion, too, so I’ll just crawl back into my glass house and close my eyes real tight.
I’ve got a couple of friends who Nuno-felt things. It is a fair amount of work, but their stuff really isn’t bad. I think it helps if you’re felting things for hats and bags, though–If you’re not using some pretty nice wool for the felting, it’s going to be fairly stiff stuff.
What I like is that it’s patriotic, Fourth of July colors for a season when nobody in their right mind would wear wool anything. Heh.
Well, I can’t help you there but how about adorable?
It’s a Bacon Wrap!
(if she marketed it that way, she could sell a bunch of them.)
Now I want bacon.
I made a Nuno felt scarf last winter. Result: it feels like stiff, scratchy cardboard around your neck. The cats ended up with a wool cat-bed liner that they love to knead.
Aren’t you supposed to use cold water for that kind of stain?

“Flying Crotch Bacon – A Cautionary Tale”
How did you guess my Indian name???
Well, it does serve some good. Men are notorious at not knowing what the hell is going on. Wear this and it’s like a giant unmistakable sign that says, “Leave the chocolat and ice cream by the door, and get the hell out.”
And speaking of men, where have all the half-naked hot ones walking around this site gone?
We have FEELINGS TOO, you know! We’re not just some piece of meat to oggle at!
Not like bacon.
Men like women, women like bacon. Make it work in your favor.
Groucho would have a lot to say about the two last comments.
I make nuno felted shawls but this is why I don’t sell them on Etsy.It’s impossible to make them look good in photos. Mine are soft and lightweight. Would definitely not use these colors together.
My kids used to make coffee filter “art” in preschool, and that’s what this reminds me of. I think those “art” days were akin to the nights my grandmother (mother of 15) would throw a giant bowl of buttered noodles in the middle of the dining table and retreated to a darkened room with a glass of sherry. It’s just another manifestation of no fucks left to give.
Blue waffle with raspberry syrup anyone?
Somebody rubbed their face on a placemat after the Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘N Fruity breakfast at IHOP.
Does it look a bit like a flattened placenta or is it just me?
It’s not you.
I want someone to explain what the attraction of art that looks like it’s made out of used pads and tampons is. I hated having my period. I did not in any way, shape or form consider it empowering. It meant I generally missed at least two days of school and work every month due to the hellacious cramping.To add insult to injury, it started when I was 11.
When I had to have a partial hysterectomy after I had my twins, I was thrilled. No more having to worry about birth control or cramps or stained underwear. I’d never planned on having more than two children anyway, so losing my uterus in no way made me feel less of a woman.
I’ve honestly never missed the damn thing, and I simply don’t understand certain women’s fascination with it-as if having a uterus makes you some sort of mystical creature who can tame unicorns. It makes you a woman who can bear children (if you want to). Beyond that, it’s just one more thing to worry about.
Your first paragraph sounds just like me (if you add in 9+ days of heavy bleeding…stupid von willebrands.)
I actually really like the wrap style and design. I have no idea what Nuno felt is. Apparently it is scratchy, I have gathered. Other than the colors, I kinda like the simplicity of this piece, however.
It bled all around the edges, but left the center untouched? That is one spiteful vagina.
Well there’s a good name for an all-female Neo-punk band- The Spiteful Vaginas.
(probably already exists)
