These crochet mellon’s were made by my friend sarah-jane cook. The mellon pieces are 3D & filled with poly toy stuffing they are fun & safe for children & adults to play with or chew on.
I made this giant strawberry myself. It is hand stitched from coloured felt & filled with poly toy stuffing. the eyes are childproof plastic eyes, so this is safe for kids & grownups. This decorative toy is really easy to make & you don’t really need a pattern.
This cute little street racer is another yarn bombed bike from the bike SA, bike art exhibition.
There is so much great attention to detail in these yarn bombed bike wheels.
The night time motive on these wheels are super cute with the half moon & the owl.
Fluffy bike wheels. If you want to yarn bomb wheels like this there are loads of fluffy yarns that you can buy including chenille.
This car is the ultimate yarn bomb on wheels. I found this pic on a friends Facebook page & I think the photo was taken in Mount Barker south Australia.
This yarn bombed gun is a colourful knitted toy gun made for play not war.
Cross stitch not war. Flip the middle digit to war.
Rainbows not rage. Cross stitch on black aida fabric.
This hand sculpture has been adorned with a fab yarn bomb watch. This glossy sculpture is pointing the finger in the direction of craft.
This Yarn bombed bike is yet another triumph from the people at bike SA http://www.facebook.com/BikeArtAdelaide This fantastic group is bringing colour to the streets of Adelaide & at the same time encouraging cycling & craft which are both such brilliant pastimes
This rainbow bike wheel has been yarn bombed in delicate crochet by an anonymous Adelaide yarn bomber
Every household needs a crochet phone
All good yarn bombers appreciate a good cup of tea. Tea & knitting go together like a diamond & a pearl. So when I’m not knitting, crocheting, yarn bombing or blogging, I like to take tea at Tiffanys with the lovely Audrey.
My house really needed some brightening up & I felt like doing some craft, so I decided to start by yarn bombing the front door.
I crafted this felt softie doll as a little mascot for my house & sewed her to the front door. I knitted strips of coloured yarn & wove them through the grid on the security door to give it a friendly look.
I yarn bombed this pole at the front of my house. The pole is sheathed in a fluorescent knit & adorned with blue crochet bobbles.
I’m intending to completely cover these poles with knitting over the next few weeks.
This is just the basic yarn bombed front door from before I added my felt toy mascot.
This is what the finished door looks like from the inside. I like how the light picks up the colour in the knitting.
Yarn bombing this rocking horse has been a long project for me. It all started when I found this little second hand rocking horse in the st Vinnies op-shop.
The horse is wooden & very cute however I thought it could do with a little yarn bombing make-over.
This is the rocking horse when it was only half covered in brilliant yarn. The nose is crochet & the rest is knitted wool & acrylic knitted on 6mm needles with 8 ply yarn.
The horsey still has three legs to cover & a rocker in this picture. Sewing the coverings on the rockers seemed easier to do on my couch so I let horsey have the best seat in the house.
Horsey the rocking horse still needs a bit more work doing! Some eyes are to be sewn on & possibly a bridle & some other little unexpected flourishes. I think he might even go on some adventures. For updates on horsey & my other yarn bombing projects watch this space or even follow my blog.
