A journey through inspiration, design and manufacture of crafty creations.
Thursday, 6 February 2014
Anna Hrachovec is today's inspiration. Anna is an extremely talented designer and knitter. Her website and blog Mochimochi Land (follow the link on her name above) is guaranteed to make you smile, even on the most miserable of days (even now as I just picked up the URL link the images on her banner instantly made me smile!). Her knitted characters and worlds are bright, colourful, very imaginative and EXTREMELY CUTE. A few years ago she also did a one-a-day project of teeny tiny mochimochi and the concept took off and became a regular feature on her blog, she wrote a book based on many of the patterns she created over that month, and they gave her inspiration for several art installations.
Here are some examples of her work:
