knit bombing and crochet yarn bombing are craft sensations this season.
Yarn bombing is a colourful form of street art that appeals to people of all ages.Yarn bombing is a soft and fluffy way to brighten up any old pole or street sign.
Grab a pair of knitting needles or a crochet hook and join the fun.The humble crochet doily is a wonderful inspiration for yarn bombers and crochet lovers.
Crochet is such a versatile craft you can crochet a blanket a tea cosie or even a tree cosie.
I spotted this great yarn bomb tree cosie when I was taking a stroll through Port Adelaide. The vintage buttons look fantastic with the bright yarn and textured tree bark. I also picked up some great vintage crochet blankets from Port Adelaide Vinnies thrift store and they look great in my house as wall hangings and throw rugs.
I love decorating with yarn and felt toys and this little toy is something that I hand stitched when I was on holiday in a caravan and now it’s stuck to the front front door.
I love crafting on my holidays because I find it so relaxing. I sewed this little felt toy while I was on a family holiday at christmas. The buttons make great eyes although they are probably not safe for children under three but since I’m in my thirties I think I can manage not to swallow the buttons.
