The Giant Textile Books

The dragon I showed you yesterday was part of the display for The Giant Textile Books exhibition. This was the current project from Alison and Ann Murray.

Previously they have had a 30ft high knitted Christmas Tree and a life sized Knitted Gingerbread House. Originally the projects were to inspire people to knit, but this time they expanded it to include any textile craft. The subjects this time were Myths and Mythology

The dragon from yesterday was standing in the Cover of this book.

and the Seasons. This was the Cover.





This exhibition was to collect for the Great Ormond Hospital and for Craft Aid UK. Details of all the projects, including videos can be found at their website. They have some patterns on their site as well. (I don't knit, but I know some of you do!)
