THRIFT STORE TREASURES & CRAFT

I yarn bombed this old wooden walking cane with vibrant nylon knitting yarn.

I found this wooden toy horse at my local vinnies thrift store & I decided to yarn bomb it.
I love my local vinnies thrift store and this yarn bombed pole.I found this pre-loved hand knitted toy at vinnies for half price. I thought the care that must have been taken in knitting this toy deserved to be seen by more people, so I took a few polaroids of it to share.I found this little needlepoint in a kit at a market bazaar when I was on a visit to Tasmania and I stitched it up while I was on my holiday.

YARN BOMB REPAIRS and STREET ART

This tree was yarn bombed with a lot of love, a lot of yarn went into it and a lot of hours were spent knitting it, not to mention the effort involved in attaching it to the tree.

Unfortunately some vandals got to this yarn bombing with some sort of blade. The good news is that the tree is happy and healthy and we got to the scene quickly and did some repair work on the knitting.

The repairs were done on the fly and the only tool we had at hand were some sparkly craft pipe cleaners.

The pipe cleaners did their job well and I think even added some pizzaz to the yarn bombing.
