History of Yarn Bombing Day
The Yarn Bombing Day was not celebrated worldwide initially. It all started from a Sewing boutique where they started to make yarn bombs for their door handles. They took different types of yarns and made their own pattern on this day to cover their door handles. From there it started spreading worldwide. Yarn Bombing is not about covering the structures or objects in the public. It is the unique way of creating a pattern and making the things look beautiful than before. It started off from door handles in a sewing boutique and moved on to making covers for telephones, bikes racks, colourful socks on statues and on tress as well.
Yarn Bombing is done with a spirit of beautification and fun to bring colourful patterns to urban areas around the world. People started seeing yarn bombing from a different angle. They appreciate the colourful pattern of the yarns. Trees are being yarn bombed which make it look beautiful and colourful. Yarn bomber stopped using wool as they are allergic to some people and they use only natural fabrics. They do it with love and create a pattern and make their time fantastic.
