If yarnbombing is a waste of time and materials, then why don’t aerosol artists get flack for not touching up house paint jobs instead of painting street walls? Because art. True, yarnbombing is more temporary and removable. But even Scotch Guarded yarnbombs don’t seem clean after a good wash and dry. Unless they’ve been indoors. And that’s just where our Old Navy truck yarnbomb was all through the holiday season. So when the Old Navy team asked us to repurpose the yarnbomb into memorabilia for the office, we put every usable scrap to work. (more…)
I am pleased to show you two more yarn bombed chairs in yellow and brown to go with the white one I made a few weeks ago. Made from reclaimed IKEA furniture and covered in crocheted recycled yarn, they exude my eco-friendly hand made style. All three are on display at STUDIO Gallery in San Francisco until May 27th with the San Francisco Etsy Street Team gallery show.

I got a request from a happy customer to make this hat without the scarf it originally came with. He also wanted something to wear in the summer, so I switched out the acrylic white stripes with organic cotton ones. The blue in this hat is entirely recycled in Europe. As always, it’s a custom fit and comes with a tree donation. Get one for your favorite Doctor Who fan here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74224616/oyspaceman-hat-in-recycled-fiber
