I didn't know where to post this so sorry if I chose the wrong forum.

This beer cozy is made out of a roadkill squirrel. I skinned the squirrel and tanned it myself. Is made to fit on 12oz bottles. It has a leather patch on the belly for it to fit the bottle. The top of the bottle goes far enough for it to not touch your lips when you drink.

I can't decide if I think it needs eyes or not... On one hand, having eyes staring at me while I drink my beer would make me feel like the critter was judging me. On the other hand, the soul-less holes are kind of haunting. All in all I appreciate your sense of humor.
Is it hard to tan the skins? I don't even eat meat, so I don't think I could stomach doing it myself, but it seems really hard.

OMG that's horrific.  I can't decide if it's awful or brilliant.  I think it needs eyes.

i gotta admit, that's so wrong - and yet, it reminds me of the book 'Lady Oracle' by Margaret Atwood (I think that's the one with the performance artist who also does taxidermy); and seeing as how you're salvaging - in a Fallout kinda way, lol - cheers!

That is wicked cool!
How neat that you can use roadkill like that.  

Were you inspired by that English beer company that made an End of the Earth (or something like that) beer with the highest alcohol content that had a roadkill cozy a few years ago?

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Ew, but definitely interesting. That being said, I agree it needs eyes. Googly ones that move Tongue

I wasn't inspired by that, I actually saw that after I finished the piece.
