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.
A 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.
Continuing the rose theme with 2 giant blooms displayed on the rear wheel.
With his cute pink button cheeks a snail this sweet just has to be forgiven for having a little nibble on the vegetation.
Nestling on the front wheel is a silky silver spiders web, home to two (not so scary) spiders, but wait a minute there’s only one!
There he is, he’s obviously just been for a spin, pardon the pun.
He has just been exploring the rose vine that’s creeping around the cross-bar.
The Country Rose Garden bicycle featured in the 2015 yarn bombing at the surgery along with another themed on the seaside. They certainly gained a lot of interest.
It took me approximately two weeks of crocheting to cover each bike and make the adornments
