I have been perusing the archives of this blog, going back several years to find the gems. Here is a collection of great crochet art pieces that appeared on this blog a long time ago but shouldn’t be overlooked today!
In my last roundup of beautiful crochet art, I mentioned street artist Julia Riordan. Her work is amazing so I wanted to share more of it with you today.
I always love everything that Maya makes over at Little Treasures, so it’s no surprise that I love the things that inspire her as well. I was immediately captured by her post about crochet jewelry artist Miho Fujita and was compelled to find out more information about the artist if I could.
I am always astounded by what people are doing in crochet art, taking their skills with crochet and applying original ideas to create the most unique items!
I am always delighted to see upcycled doily items by Maillo in my Instagram feed, and it’s pure joy to go through the online Maillo boutique. I thought I was going to say more about this but what I find as I sit down to write this is that the images really and truly speak for themselves!
Last fall I received a beautiful wooden jewelry frame from eWoodStory, which I filled with some textured crochet. I was happy with what I created, but it’s absolutely nothing compared to some of the stunningly beautiful works of art that have emerged inside of these little frames. They aren’t just filled with crochet – people are filling them with embroidery and other stitchery as well – and I swear every time I see a creation I think it’s better than the last.
Una Lorenzen’s documentary titled “yarn” takes a look at knitting and crochet artists around the world and the interesting work that they are doing with needles, hooks and yarn. The film debuted at SXSW to mixed reviews but looks worth a watch to me.
