Have you ever heard of the term “yarn-bombing”? Well, many of us play it safe and make garments, home decor, and dolls for everyday use, but the talented crochet artist London Kaye takes to the streets with her art! Yarn-bombing is a form of crochet art that takes crochet pieces and are installed on public places/items to give some life to the mundane! She now even has her own theme packs available at JoAnns Stores (check them out here!) and her own crochet hooks which can be found here and in stores at JoAnn Fabrics as well!
You can find the emoji pack in stores! After seeing London’s work, its totally inspired me to try something out like this; maybe I’ll take to the streets of Portland this summer and give it a whirl!
I think this type of yarn play would be such a wonderful outing to get people together and have a blast; and talk about making your work public.
London Kaye sums up her art by saying,
“My message is that joy, beauty, and happiness
can be found anywhere we’re willing to look.”
And isn’t that the truth?! Just look what she did with the front window of Lion Brand Yarn In NYC!
