First off, who actually measures and/or knows of these things? Like, who goes around finding out what the world's largest crochet sculpture is? Then again, there aren't that many large format crochet sculptures, let alone people that make them larger than themselves. Enter Shauna Richardson, who has created the world's largest crochet sculpture, Lionheart.

In 2010, Hauser & WIrth exhibited over seventy of the late Louise Bourgeois fabric drawings alongside four large-scale sculptures. Made from clothing and other domestic effects accumulated through out Bourgeois' lifetime, the drawings utilize the imminent charactersitics of the weathered materials.

We found this on the HopeWell Creek shop on Etsy, and we thought it was a clever made to order piece. The Felt Campire Playset with Felt Marshmallows, allowing "you and your child the authentic feel of camping." Just with felt and a lack of bug bites. We like it.

We have been seeing the unique, handmade, what appears to be crocheted masks of artist Aldo Lanzini for quite some time, and finally got around to posting the work this morning. What at first looks like aliens from a very soft planet become psychedelic with each colorful explosion of knitted bizarreness.

We have always loved the way Dr Lakra takes found vintage photography or fashion magazine covers and applies his signature tattoo handstyle over the top. Today, we just saw the work of Italian artist, Maurizio Anzeri, who embroiders elaborate patterns upon found photography, and like Lakra, creates a beautiful combination of vintage and contemporary art style.

This is probably only cool in picture form, but the idea of the Minced Wool Sausage, with the yarn coming out of the mincer, is quite clever. This image has been around the web most of this year, and Google is failing to give a name to the creation. Anyone know?

This is one of those mornings where we love the Internet. Seriously, how great are these embroidered x-rays by Philadelphia-based Matthew Cox? In a world of the occasional sameness, this is just a great original series. This is Cox' comment on the ever-increasing presence of photography in contemporary art.

Skulls look a lot less menacing (or human) if you just add some intricate bead formations to them. Our Exquisite Corpse are making these patterned, beaded skulls for purchase, just in time for your Halloween party that coinicides with your Day of the Dead party that coincides with your Burning Man reunion party. We like them.

Toronto based artist, illustrator and crafts-person Laura Harte creates adorable little erotic embroideries and scenes of love and lust with her needle and thread... what an innocent way to pass the time...
