BAC Yarnbomb Manitout Springs, CO


A group of us decided to re-purpose an old yarnbomb that we took down. The Business of Arts Center in Manitou Springs, CO requested some work on their site. Our fearless group leader mapped out a plan and a group of us sewed squares together. The “color wheel” of sorts went on the stairs while the multicolored squares cozied some trees. It took a group of four two days to put them all together. Thankfully all the squares were knit/crocheted
ahead of time!

Templates for the cardboard pieces are provided.

Mini Organizer

This crocheted mini organizer is perfect for home or the office. The right size for paperclips, buttons, pens, pencils, scissors and other small items, cardboard keeps the shelf sturdy and wire helps the drawers maintain their shape. A few buttons and a butterfly embellishment and this is functional and adorable. Available in the store for $1.99 USD, the pattern for this crocheted mini organizer includes step by step instructions and many pictures. Finished size, 10 inches wide, 6 inches tall, 4.5 inches deep.

I asked my husband if he wanted this for his desk at work. He said he too much stuff on his desk already. I offered to make one in black, white and red with skulls. He still wasn’t interested. Oh, well. This will actually be perfect for keeping my crochet supplies organized.

One-Eyed Plant

This one-eyed plant is perfect for keeping an eye on things at home or at work. I originally designed it for my husband, the plant assassin. He has managed to kill every plant he has had in his office! The one-eyed plant pattern is for sale in the store for $1.99 USD. It is a quick and easy pattern using mostly single crochet though you will also need to know how to do a half double, double and treble crochet as well as slip stitches (US terminology). It is approximately 10 inches tall when finished and the eye and leaves can be positioned any way desired so long as wire is inserted. I put a chopstick in the stem so it would stand up tall. Popcorn in the pot helps it stand by itself. This pattern calls for a size H hook and medium worsted weight yarn. Red Heart yarn is pictured.
