Beautifully Yarn Bombed Wheelchair By Penny Richards
Penny Richards: “My kid deserves a completely unique and exuberant wheelchair. So I’m yarnbombing a plain black spare wheelchair with absolutely no personality into something full of color and texture and convenient upgrades (like pockets!) and fun extras (like jingle bells and mirrors and beads), with crochet, hand sewing, and embroidery, mostly using secondhand materials.”

Love this! I have been planning to crochet some covers for my wheelchair’s skirt guards so I can add some much needed pockets but Penny’s efforts are fabulous! Jingle bells are a great idea. Being at a lower height in a wheelchair, able-bodied people don’t see me in their peripheral vision and often step into me or stop suddenly in front of me (and then blame me when I can’t stop in time). The jingle bells will certainly alert people that I am coming so there will be no excuses. 🙂
