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.

DIY Witches’ Spell Napkins

Are you looking for a cheap, easy, and original holiday gift idea? Make these Witches’ Spell Napkins using tea/coffee dyed thrifted napkins and iron on transfer paper. I have had great luck using these tee shirt iron on paper – the images come out sharp and can be machine washed over and over again.

DIY Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas Wreath

Make this DIY Jack Skellington Christmas Wreath using a Dollar Store plastic Christmas ornament, foam wreath ring, fabric, and craft foam.

From Jen at EPBOT:

Oh, and I haven’t done this yet myself, but to make this transition into Christmas better you can add a Santa hat & beard on Jack! You could also tack on some extra red-and-white swirls to look like peppermints.

Find the DIY Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas Wreath tutorial from EPBOT here.

You can find tiny Santa Hats on Amazon or make your own. The ones below are at Pampered Beardies here. In the About section of Pampered Beardies:

Proceeds from the shop continue to help pay the ongoing expenses of rehabilitating and re-homing Bearded Dragons. The shop also donates to other reptile rescue groups.
