An Awkward Juxtaposition of Crafts and Anatomy

DIY vaginas are great. Sometimes the one that comes with the kit can rip or sag with use. It can even get dusty, if you leave it on the shelf behind the preserves and tinned beans for too long. Finally, you will have somewhere nice-smelling and convenient to store petty cash, prophylactics and tranquilizers while haranguing strangers on the street.

The Snatchel.
The Snatchel.
Fallopian tube pompoms!
This is The Snatchel, created by Zabet Steward. The colour of this one in particular does my head in, as it is such a violent shade of magenta. She has included instructions to knit your own, and if you feel that the Eurocentric vulva depicted is unattractive, whatever. Make your own. Put your wallet, phone and some chapstick into your vagina, sling it over your shoulder and traipse about the town making some kind of post-punk statement about vagynas and being a womyn, or something.

You can find the instructions here.
