Heart Bomb in Leipzig

I decided pretty spontaneously to participate in the One Sheepish Girl annual heart bomb

You can find the instructions on her website, it’s simple but effective!

Make a heart (you can find ideas & instructions here or you use my crochet pattern) , attach a little note ‘You are loved’ or something like this and the hashtag #sheepishheartbomb & distribute the hearts wherever you want!

 

I used my own crochet heart pattern. It’s pretty easy (US terms):

Make a magic ring.

Ch 4,

dtc, 2 tr, 3 dc,

ch 3 sc in first ch,

3dc, 2 tr, dtc,

ch 3

Tighten the center of the heart. Join the ch 3 in the center of the heart with a slip stitch.

Bind off and cut (but not to short).

 

I left the hearts near my flat in Leipzig – at the supermarket’s door, at a church, near the theatre, at a S/M bar, in the tram, in the climbing gim … but see yourself!

It was so much fun!!! ❤

My secret project or How I tried to make my city a bit more amazing

He!

I should have post this a long time ago, to be exact in May.

For my Portfolio and because I always wanted to do that I tried my first but hopefully not the last yarn bombing in Leipzig.

My idea was to make the city a bit more colourful and brighter. Near my flat are many construction zones and scaffoldings, so there is much grey around me. And to be honest – I like every colour but grey isn’t my favourite one. I thought about what I could make and I decided to crochet drops in different colours an arrange them at a scaffolding. So I crocheted about 30 drops in different bright colours and attached them to a invisible thread.

Then I brought it to the scaffolding near the place I live and knotted it on.

 

What might sound so easy took many hours of hard work and patience. But I’m proud I finished it.

But unfortunately one day later it didn’t hang there anymore….

 

Here are some pictures.

I hope you like and maybe share it 🙂
