There is a powerful myth among some cultures—it is about a woman, or a goddess, who is irresistible to men. But those fortunate enough to win her favor and visit her bed soon discover her terrible secret: her vagina has teeth. Is the pleasure they find in the vagina dentata worth castration and inevitable exsanguination? One can only imagine.

Does not need to be precise for this project. If you know you knit tightly, go up a needle size. If you know you knit loosely, go down a needle size.
Adding even more than two googly eyes could be quite fun!
Knit the Head:
Cast on 36 stitches.
Lay your merkin on the felt and trace its outline with the marker, continuing the outline below the bottom edge of the knitted piece to form a triangle. Cut out the triangle inside the lines by 1/2 to 1/3 of an inch, making sure the knitted piece fits the top of the triangle. You'll attach this after adding teeth.
Add Teeth and Mouth/Backing:
Cut a strip of beaded ribbon trim about two inches longer than the bottom edge of your knitted piece, and sew it into place on the wrong (trimmed/knit) side. Cut the trim to fit.
Sew the knitted piece to the felt triangle, and fluff up any fur that was trapped by your sewing.
Position googly eyes as desired on the front of your merkin. Using scissors, carefully trim the excess fur beneath. Attach googly eyes with craft glue. Allow to dry.
Affix to bare skin with spirit gum, or add small loops to the top corners and wear on a chain or belt.
