Yarn as art poppies.

Many of you don’t know this, but I’m a knitter and have been since I was 15 years old. I’ve been knitting over half my life – WAY longer than I’ve been decoupaging. It follows that when I find a project that combines yarn and Mod Podge, I get the fun excitement tingles. I recently discovered this Poppies piece at Yarn As Art, the online site of the L and B Yarn Co. Leslie combines a textured background made using Mod Podge with some knit flower buds, and it’s so cute I can hardly take it. Go here to see her tutorial and also to get the free poppy pattern. I really want to recreate this, with bright crazy colors.

    Learning to knit is at the top of my crafty to-do list that’s waiting for me until after I finish my Master’s…I love the poppies!

    Oh Amy, Love this post! My students can’t knit, but they can certainly create fun yarn poppies….I’m going to turn this into an art lesson right away (that’s code for definitely doing it, but not sure when) and I’ll link back when the kiddies artwork is posted on my site.
    Thanks bunches:)
