What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 129: Fiber “Arts”


If nothing else, you have to respect its self awareness.

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Many of my Etsy searches go off the rails when I hit the Fiber Arts category. Some of it is true art, but today, I’d like to show you some of the nuttier items I have found recently. Of course, as with all Etsy categories, there were also desirable, adorable, creativeshockingly beautiful items, but you know how I love to chase down those terribles!

I don’t understand most of it, but the nooses do seem on point.

I know so many people who would love this! By FemmeThreads

Please tell me I’m not the only one who see it.

“Reactions to the bag is either complete love and adoration to discust and repulsion. I feel that is what makes it so special.” In case you were wondering, I fall firmly in the ‘discust’ camp.

Weiner dog on a stick. Awkward, though the dog doesn’t seem to mind.

The cutest felted hedgehog in the world. By GladOArt who can satisfy all your hedgehog cravings. Seriously.

This is a sweater monster. So is this.

Here’s a cute, cuddly dissected rat for your kid’s room! That ought to help the little brats sleep!

Amazing! By RedWorkStitches

I’m not saying I could do better. I’m just saying I’d have the sense not to try to sell it for $130.

Sometimes I wonder if aliens have landed and filled Etsy with social experiments to see what we’ll do.

Look! It’s an art wanna-bee!

Joy is not the first word that comes to mind.

This claims to be a sheep made from an old bedspread and a rusty bed spring. I assume it’s stuffed with used tissues in the name of authenticity.

Toilet paper cosy. You know, for when you have to Pope.

It’s amazing how much squee they can pack into something so tiny. By LamLinh

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. We have a pair of pet rats in our house; I imagine that if I hung that dissection mock-up on the wall, they might take it as a death threat.

  3. Can’t say I liked any of this….well perhaps the hedgehog was too cute for comfort…but all it looks like to me are excuses for more cat hair to get caught in. Loved the viewing process though soooooo THANX. ~~dru~~


  4. I think you know my kids well enough by now through the magic of the internet to not be surprised when I say that they would actually want that dissected rat art. Indeed, they found a dead frog today and dissected it with sharp sticks. Little gems.

    As far as favourites go, I can’t decide between the hedgehog and the feminist embroidery. The items that made me laugh the most were the elephant camera dong, penis-faced bunny, and Sloth as a handbag.

    Thank you, as always, for the chuckles.
