Country Garden Crochet Bicycle

In line with the current trend for cycling what better way to celebrate than to our craft than upcycling a bicycle.

I had so much fun creating this quintessential english country rose garden wrapped around one of the bicycles that were kindly donated by our local recycling centre in Burniston.

Country Garden Crochet BicycleA bed of 20 roses in shades of red, pink, peach and lemon made the cover for the seat. It wouldn’t be a rose garden without a cute little bumble bee, this little honey maker was donated by Mrs G, a very talented knitting friend.

    Have to be honest. It’s the only use of a bicycle I would consider 😂😂.

    Please tell me you actually ride this!! It’s fab! Apart from the probability that it would get grubby quickly, and might cause accidents because it’s such a head-turner. I love the idea of this being ridden through traffic! 🙂

      Sadly the bike was not roadworthy when it was given so it cannot be ridden, I have thought it would be fun to do another that I could ride. Where we live has lots of hills though so I am not sure I would have the stamina to ride a bike very far.

      It was for a good cause and the re-cycling centre were very kind to provide the bike for us to use. Also I must thank my friends who provided the snail and the bumble bee that add fun to the project.
