yet more subversiveness

the connected installation is starting to come together

bowl no. 3 (check out the previous posts about bowl 1 and bowl 2)

[crocheted with a size 10 crochet hook – strips hand cut from upcycled electric blanket fabric; electric blanket tapes and wire; torn silk, including vintage; satin ribbon]

subversiveness continues

this morning i finished a second bowl using materials from our dismantled electric blanket

it is crocheted from thin strips of the blanket material for the base and most of the sides

then i’ve added torn silk, including vintage silk linings, and satin ribbon

again, i let the ends hang out …

torn strips of silk are also piled into the basket

[7 inches diameter – top;  10.5 inches diameter – across widest point]

now to cut more strips for part 3 of this project …

crochet as applique

i thought it was time to share my ‘other’ creative side

as a mixed media artist, crochet is only one medium i use

i love to make art from all sorts of fabrics, threads, found objects and so on

i also love to dye and rust fabrics and paper (to see more, click here to visit my gone rustic blog)

sometimes crochet ‘crosses over’ … in the artworks shown here i have used crochet as applique

apron for a driad

for sale

before i became so subversive …

… i made these christmas stockings

i hand-crocheted the edgings and used vintage linen, lightweight upholstery samples, ribbon and buttons to accentuate their elegance (as i said, this was before i became so subversive)

some sold; some i gave away …

it was a fun part of my crochet journey
