Extreme Craft

Extreme Craft “A compendium of art masquerading as craft, craft masquerading as art and craft extending its middle finger”.

Found this Extreme Craft blog today all about creative reuse and homemade craft from all sorts of ‘stuff’. Apprently it’s very trendy at the moment. I didn’t realise I was so ‘in’ or ‘with it’. Haven’t we all been doing this for years before it had a name?

A new word I came across which I like is ‘trashion’!!!! I’m sure I can make plenty of that, but would I wear it?? I don’t know. It would depend on what it was. I haven’t completed my wrap around skirt I made for this summer. I need to re-dye it because I’m not happy with the colours.

I just finished this bag the other day but today I just realised it’s made from old scrap wool which was my Grandma’s and my Mum’s and also the bluey green I used for the handle and putting it together is from an old jumper I bought so that I could unravel it and use the wool. I’ve felted some of it too. I didn’t realise I was so in vogue! ha ha ha 🙂
