Have you noticed that weaving, macrame, knitting & hand-sewn pieces are popping up in homes and retail shops? And a lot of people are sharing how to create these pretty wall hangings yourself. From DesignLoveFest’s workshops to A Beautiful Mess’s awesome DIY to Poppytalk’s roundup of 10 weaving projects, the craft of utilizing yarn to create pretty pieces is back. And I love it!
When I read about artist Lucy Sparrow’s art installation of filling an entire shop with hand-sewn felt goods, I had to see it to believe and she delivered in spades. Lucy recreated the neighborhood corner store and every thing (every single item) was knit or sewn by hand. From the shelves of beer to the cash register to the local paper, Lucy and her team worked their crafty magic. So why did she want to create this exhibit? Lucy shares that it’s “slice of life and that apart from being fun – the exhibition encourages people to take a closer look at the everyday”
Head over to Sew Your Soul to learn more about Lucy and her work. You can also buy her products if you can’t make it to the London exhibit in person.
