7180 hand crafted felt cafetiere coffee cosy red and orange image2 I Cant Really Make Fun of IT if I Dont Know What IT is...

Take a stab at it. What do you think this is supposed to be? Am I missing something, because nothing is coming to mind.

It’s described as:

This unique hand felted Cafetiere Coffee cosy is made with just merino wool, soap and water combined with time and energy!

Hand felted and seamless it is made using traditional wet felting techniques, to give a contemporary piece of practical art.

Height of Cosy is 10 ” excluding the spikes.
Width is 9″

Which I can understand, but the spikes? What are the spikes for? Are they supposed to represent something?

Is the white ‘V’ patch supposed to be something?

*looks around*

Is anyone getting this? Is it a joke? I don’t even know if I’m supposed to laugh, cry or be in awe of this crafter’s talents.

Someone? Anyone?

Sam and Karen hail from none other than Craftastrophe.net, where they prove on an almost daily basis that handmade isn’t always pretty.

Craftastrophe was created by nothing more than a few innocent messenger chats where we shared some creative pounces we came across on Etsy. From then on it was a mirage of craftastrophes which couldn’t very well be kept to ourselves, but had to be shared.

These craftastrophes aren’t necessarily bad crafts, many are well made and have taken the crafter a lot of time and energy to create; this site’s goal is to showcase those crafts that are funny, weird, strange and make us laugh. We mean no harm and can honestly say that there have been sales for some sellers on various sites due to their craft being featured on this site! We merely want to share the laughs and enjoy the talents of many. Talents which neither of us have.

    what a bizarre item. it is vaguely remiscent of a cow’s skull with the spikes forming the horns. i don’t know if that is deliberate, or what that has to do with coffee.

    I think it is a contemporary take on a Texas Longhorn skull. That’d be my guess.

    I figured the horns were to make it easier to take off and put on without getting your hands close to the hot inside. I think it is Texas longhorn meets Darth Maul with the added joy of fire colours to remind you that it is keeping something hot for you. Also, the orangyness apparently releases endorphins into your brain ever time you look at it.
