YARN BOMBING ORDINARY THINGS

SONY DSCI TOOK THIS WOODEN WALKING CANE & I SEWED A PIECE OF STRIPED KNITTING AROUND IT. IT WAS A SIMPLE KNITTING JOB & THE CANE IS STILL USEABLE.SONY DSCTHIS CANE LOOKS A BIT LIKE A CANDY CANE & I ENJOY HAVING IT DECORATING MY CRAFT INSPIRED HOME.SONY DSCPOMPOMS ARE EASY &  A LOT OF FUN TO MAKE. KIDS CAN MAKE THEM & SO CAN ADULTS. YOU CAN EITHER BUY A  SIMPLE POMPOM MAKER FOR A FEW DOLLARS AT A CRAFT STORE OR YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN POMPOM MAKER WITH A PIECE OF ROUND CARDBOARD.SONY DSC

YARN BOMBING YOUR ACCESSORIES

SONY DSCI KNITTED SOME LITTLE NOTEBOOK COVERS & THEN I FOUND THE LARGE NOTEBOOK IN A GIFT STORE & THE KNITTED DESIGN IS PRINTED ON THE COVER.SONY DSCI TEND TO MAKE UP MY KNITTING PATTERNS AS I GO ALONG & IT’S ALWAYS GOOD TO WRITE DOWN THE PATTERN FOR FUTURE USE. THESE BOOKS ARE GREAT FOR NOTING DOWN MY KNITTING & CROCHET PATTERNS & I EVEN STORE A SPARE SEWING NEEDLE STUCK IN THE FRONT COVER.SONY DSCTHESE YARN COVERED BANGLES ARE A FUN & FASHION FORWARD CRAFT PROJECT & THEY ARE EASY & CHEAP TO MAKESONY DSCI USED WOODEN BANGLES TO MAKE THESE, BUT ANY OLD PLASTIC OR METAL BANGLE OR BRACELET COULD BE USED. ALL I DID WAS WIND MULTI COLOURED YARN & WOOL AROUND THE BANGLES UNTIL THEY WERE COVERED & THEN I TIED THE WOOL OFF AT THE END BUT YOU COULD USE A DAB OF GLUE.SONY DSCIF YOU ARE WANTING TO GET STRIPES ITS EASY. JUST BUY A MULTI COLOURED BALL OF YARN ( I BOUGHT SOME FROM KMART FOR TWO DOLLARS A BALL ) IF YOU WIND THE WOOL EVENLY AROUND THE BANGLE IT WILL FORM STRIPES ALL ON ITS OWN.
