THIS OLD FASHIONED POST BOX IN PORT ADELAIDE HAS BEEN YARN BOMBED WITH CROCHET. THE PICTURE REMINDED ME OF THE POST BOX IN THE PICTURE BELOW.THIS HORSE ADORNED POST BOX IS AT THE FERRY TERMINAL ON BRUNY ISLAND IN TASMANIA. THIS CERAMIC HORSE HAS KNITTED WINGS.THIS YARN BOMBED ROCKING HORSE IS COVERED IN KNITTING & HAS A WOOLEN YARN TAIL.
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.
