Here it is! The instructions to make a pieced and quilted plague doctor mask!

Just as a heads up, this pattern is not really recommended for beginners. There is not a whole lot of explanation of the basic techniques, and it requires a fair bit of precision, two types of fusible interfacing, and an assumption that you can keep a consistent seam allowance and do some hand sewing and know when to sew things right sides together and such.

I am not promising anything, different methods will yield different results, I have never made a pattern exactly as it was written and neither should you. If you want something the same as the next person, go to the shops.

Actually, nevermind, this is a quarantine craft, stay home.

A WIP of my first ever leatherworking project. It’s gonna be a bag! And it’s gonna be adorable!

wait, you mean it’s going to get even cuter than it already is?!

SIGN ME THE FUCK UP

That’s the goal, anyway! Progress:

Painting up the main piece! Gonna antique it tomorrow. Things are going slower than I’d like, because a friend’s friend’s goat chomped a hole through my glove and fingernail and it feels like I slammed my fingers in a car door. Hopefully it’ll still be done in time for Christmas!

Everything’s painted! Now I just need to antique it and assemble the bag!

image

Finish is applied! Time to put everything together!

IT’S DONE! Only glued rather than sewn due to my nommed-on hand, but it still looks nice enough! Better pictures coming soon.

It’s so pretty I’m gonna cry

Oh my fucking God this is amazing

Crochet Krampus Hat – Free Pattern

You can find this free crochet pattern  for a Krampus Hat at Morale Fiber here.

Who and what is Krampus? From wikipedia:

“In Central European folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”, who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts.”

Below is a modern interpretation of Krampus by Derek Yaniger for sale on Outre Gallery here.

image

Krampus can be traced back to pre-Germanic paganism. His original name, krampen, means “claw”, and he was also the son of the Norse god of the underworld, Hel.

Krampus visits houses with St. Nicholas on the night of December 5th. St. Nicholas puts candy in the shoes of good kids, while Krampus puts birch twigs in the shoes of bad kids. 

Now Krampus has become the incarnation of Scrooge and the Grinch mashed together, with a little terror thrown in. 

Here is a Krampus greeting card from the early 1900s.

This is a reblog for those who missed my Krampus post last year.
