YARN BOMB PHOTOGRAPHY

I’ve recently welcomed some new followers to my blog and as a welcome I thought it might be fun to post 20 colourful yarn bomb photographs. Each photograph illustrates a different interesting yarn bomb or yarn bombing technique that I have photographed over the past 2 years. Part of the satisfaction of yarn bombing is knitting, crocheting and the act of yarn bombing with friends. The 2nd satisfying part of yarn bombing for me is photographing colourful yarn bomb objects, including trees, grape vines, park benches, bicycles and more.

We became friends around 8 years ago when we ran a market stall together selling our hand crafted gifts and toys. Crafting and yarn bombing are fun and a great way to make friends.

RECYCLED KNITTED TOYS

hand knit doll faceMy friend Sarah Jane found her old childhood doll MOLLY when her parents were doing the big spring clean to end all spring cleans. MOLLY is such a cute dolly so I took some pictures of her and some pictures of retro knitted toys that I found at my local op shop.knitted dollsI named these two knitted dolls SAILOR SAM and PEG. After I had photographed them and sat them on my shelf for a few months I decided that as I am 37years old that I probably didn’t really need them, so I decided to donate them back to the op shop. I did enjoy their company for a little while though.knitted clownI enjoy knitting and doing all sorts of yarn craft so I can appreciate a well knitted toy clown even if I am to old to play with him. I purchased CRINKLES the CLOWN from my local Vinnies charity shop and after enjoying his company for a while I donated him back to charity.knitted dollyBut back to MOLLY the DOLLY. My friend decided to give her a make over and she did a blog post about it which I have placed a link to for your enjoyment and instruction¬†http://roustaboutart.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/molly-gets-a-makeover/

UP THE GARDEN PATH WITH PHOTOGRAPHY

These delightful crochet toys were made by my friend Branwen Davies & I photographed them in my very overgrown backyard.

These little aliens were made freestyle with no pattern & they are completely individual one of a kind creatures.This crochet teddy is relaxing by the pool. The pool is actually the top of my rainwater tank.The garden gnomes are wondering where the crochet giraffe came from. Craft is so much fun.
