YOU REALLY CAN YARN BOMB ANYTHING & YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A MASTER CRAFTSPERSON JUST BASIC KNITTING OR CROCHET SKILLS ARE ENOUGH OR YOU COULD JUST CUT UP OLD JUMPERS & SEW THEM ONTO TREE’S, POSTS, FENCES & TOYS.

WHAT I REALLY ENJOY ABOUT YARN BOMBING IS THE WAY IT BRINGS A KIND OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND FEEL TO EVERYDAY OBJECTS.

YARN BOMBING, SHOES & RETRO POLAROIDS

I knit to relax and since I already have too many scarves and plenty of blankets I started using my knits to yarn bomb poles and tree’s out front of my house and in my local area.When I’m not knitting in front of the telly or out yarn bombing harmless light poles I make shoes.I hand stitched this pair. The laces are made from grosgrain ribbon & I made little bluebird shoelace hangers for them.I’m very inspired by retro designs so I hand stitched these little toe tappers in paisley.Junk shopping is a pass time of mine & the funny little objects that I find inspire me. I love the kitsch elegance of this swan. I also love the retro feel of polaroid photography.
