Crochet Art in the Works

Lately I’ve been making a lot of small pieces of crochet art. I thought I’d share a few of them. Maybe they’ll inspire you to do something artsy with your crochet as well!

Empty Wine Packaging

A little while back I joined the Virgin Airlines wine club, which delivers wine to my house in big batches. I received my first box of fifteen wine bottles and as soon as I saw the thing they were packaged in I knew I needed to turn it into something artistic.

Here’s what I saw:

I have a huge bunch of granny squares in various sizes that I haven’t used for anything:

So I made this:

All I did here was I pulled out the brown, blue and cream colored squares that I had. I put the larger squares inside and the smaller squares outside, just gluing them all down. I love the three-dimensionality of it and varying layers / depth. I haven’t decided where I’m going to hang this yet but I’m happy with it.

Art Collage with Crochet

I picked up this kind of frightening large art piece from Goodwill for a few bucks:

The first thing I did was add some doilies on top to cut the harshness of that background:

Then I started adding in photos of old magazines, photos of some of my crochet pieces and a few actual partial crochet granny squares:

I have mixed feelings about this piece. For now it serves as a nice addition to my mantle but I think it’s really just a draft of an idea I want to develop further, collaging together crochet with photos of crochet on canvas backgrounds.

Undecided Piece in the Works!

I’ve been gathering these pieces together to make something but I don’t know yet what that something is going to be.
