I’m adoring the work of crochet artist Barbara De Pirro who works with plarn placed in nature to create stunning images and send a message.
Artist Jerry Bleem, who I recently named in my article on 20 Awesome Male Crocheters, has an exhibition coming up soon.
Magda Van der Vloed is a South African artist, designer and product developer who loves working with recycled materials. She frequently crochets with recycled plastic bags as well as with thick PVC wire.
I’m especially excited about today’s crochet giveaway item which generously comes from Tina Dean Designs, the awesome maker of terrific plarn and upcycled crochet items.
Awhile back I crocheted a plarn breast for a project called Something in the Water. Although I mentioned the project here and there, I never got around to showing off my finished piece here on the blog. The project has some new news so now seems like a good time to do that!
I was surprised when I read about Billie Johnson, a woman in her eighties who is using plarn to make creative crocheted handbags.
Did you see the post I had awhile back about Tina Dean Designs? I mentioned then that this amazing plarn designer was creating items that will be going into the press bags at the Emmys this year.
