California-based Yarnboming artists Jill and Lorna Watt of Knits For Life (previously featured here) recently transformed a pair of unassuming benches near the San Francisco Ferry Building into adorably ferocious monsters, complete with six awesome orange feet. The irrepressibly inventive sisters created this delightful yarn installation for an upcoming episode of CCTV America’s new show Full Frame.

craftandmemory:

My work features illustrations on hand-stitched and manipulated fabric. The work presents real and imagined characters through embroidered narratives, often connected to my childhood in Arizona. Threading humor throughout, I stitch drawings and text onto old linens that are often flawed or adorned with preexisting machine-embroidered imagery. I am interested in the permeable boundary that separates actual events in life from the collective mythologies of family stories, literature, and cultural history.”
