The blood and guts and gore are made using the latest high-tech stuffing and plush, to give it quite a realistic squidgy effect. We’ve tried to make Grind and the rest of his Squash-plush chums as life-like as possible. Grind follows closely in Twitch’s pawprints. The body and legs and head are made from specially sourced Squash-plush material. His right eye is plastic. The toe tag is made out of recycled brown card.

Main : Joshua Ben Longo Ana Voog I shall never complain that I am too busy after discovering Ana Voog. Performance artist, writer, musician, blogger and crochet goddess; Voog still finds time to crochet some of the most original and sassy hats I’ve ever seen. Ana’s sophisticated and colorful creations bear witness to an evolving, experimental approach to her art: extending the notion of pure artistic practice to the simple and humble medium of crochet. Ana claims “I do not knit, I freeform crochet” and her yarn fuelled improvisations brings life and movement to her hat designs (or lack of design should that be?). Some hats grow out of the crown of the head and spurt down the body like the bright orange “Pumpkin Jellyfish hat”. One hat can also be worn as a scarf, belt or legwarmer, another hat sits snugly round the head like a flapper hat. Going beyond standard threads and wool, Ana indulges in a diverse pool of textiles like recycled yarn, flax, toys, copper wire - even poodle fur! See Ana's site

Smart Car Stands Out With Crochet Cover, Plus 6 More Knitted Wonders Recyclart found this great photo on Flickr by StartTheDay showing a Smart car standing out from the crowd in Rome.
