Fabric Prints Inspired by Crochet

It's really interesting to see how artists who work in other media can still be inspired by yarncrafts and what yarncrafts like crochet and kniting represent for these artists. For instance, artist Shana Anderson has created graphic fabric prints inspired by the crochet doilies and needlepoint projects of her aunt and grandmother, invoking a sense of home and comfort. These eye-catching designs are bright and whimsical.
