For the second installment of Crafts Gone Bad I bring you this tantalizing fried eggs and bacon get up.

Thanks to Cult 45 Secondhand Bookshop for scanning this pattern in from a 1979 issue of the Jackie Annual.

Come on… you know you want one for yourself!

    eww! that’s truly awful. and the sausage thing on her bag looks like a kidney or something. what were they thinking?!

  2. paperandglue says:

    Oh my word. That’s horrendous. The purse would be bad enough, but the hat! THE HAT!

    This illustrates what a fine line there is between good and bad crafts. For instance, not too distantly related to this is the toaster purse. Toaster purse = cute and awesome. Breakfast purse and hat = terrifyingly bizarre.

    Now I know what I’m going to make everyone for Christmas! hahaha…

  4. Laamissa says:

    SHOCKINGLY AWESOME!!! I sooo have to make this!

  5. laurajean says:

    oh boy, that is the funniest thing I’ve seen for weeks.

  6. taped_on_wings says:

    HA! I just saw this in the ‘knitting flowers’ post and decided that I HAVE to make the purse. And bunches of bacon-y barrettes.

  7. Holly says:

    That’s HAWT!

  8. Shirley Ujest says:

    That would make an excellent halloween costume.

    I made the bag last year for a friend and I just have to tell you, don’t knock it till you try it! The bag was so much fun to make! I giggled through just about every stitch.

    Now the beret…that’s a different story.

  10. Carrie says:

    I have to agree, the bag looks pretty hot, I’d say. Definitely a conversation starter. The bacon on the bag would definitely be better than the sausage, though.

    All I can think of when I see the beret is my mom saying, “My hair got so greasy I could fry an egg on it!”

    Sick! I love it! I dont think I would have the guts to wear it out and have everyone point and laugh at me, but holy crap, thats hilarious.

  12. Invisible says:

    “giggled through every stich”
    hahaha, i could only imagine.
    and imagine what that model was thinking!
    and the look and thought of the person whom you would give this to as a present.

  13. I made the hat earlier this year for an installation/performance project. This is the hat I made and this is the online half of my performance.

    It’s ace! Everyone should have one!

    i honestly do want one!

  15. Fried Eggs and Bacon
    Photo from Cult 45 Bookshop Thankfully, I’ve recovered from yesterday’s egg-induced trauma. Thanks to Kelly, I’ve now discovered an alternative to fretting about making eggs — I can wear them: Crafts Gone Bad — Fried Eggs and Bacon Fashion…

  24. HI ALL.

    I just want you to know, that I am going to be making this and wearing it in March. I wish the original pattern was still available, I am going to have to make my own!
