makinthings in plus_size_sew

This might be slightly off-topic...

I checked out the book Yarn Bombing from my public library.

It got my wheels turning with some subversive public art ideas. I am thinking about some craft graffiti in my neighborhood as a response to a streak of graffiti/tagging last week. Has anyone on the list done anything with a crafted piece that they left in a public place to make a statement?

Often, but of a crafty other than sewing.
I like to write short make-you-laugh poems, roll into tiny scrolls, tie with leftover thread/ribbon and tie them to tree branches that hang over the sidewalks on my University. I've also done this with pony-bead sized clay beads I made in FireKiln pottery class- threaded on ribbon and left for others to find. Less graffiti-ish and more a cheery offering.

The closest I come to what I think you're talking about would be the tying of ribbons and yarns to lamp poles and street signs. These are rarely planned, I'll spot a bit of ribbon blowing around and tie it to something.

Although now you have me thinking... I have some screaming bright, and unbearably itchy, yarns that'd make a great light pole wrap!
