Two weeks ago, we announced a Women's Day Challenge, to craft something that in your eyes relates to this day. 13 of last Monday's post were an answer to our challenge, and they were all fabulous!
@irenenavarroart, @pialejoana and others showed us that clothes are more than a simple covering for our body, that they can have meaning and be a statement. It was difficult to make a choice, but here are four posts that show the whole spectrum of what March 8th mean to us needleworkers.
This was a challenge, and not a contest, so the small prizes will go to all eligible participants :)
A simple picture of a doll with crafted things (aren't they cute?) - but everything @creacioneslelys put into the picture has a special meaning. They show parts of a women's life, of her work and responsibilities, increased due to the pandemic.
Clothes make the man - but accessories make the woman ;) Especially if the accessories are so iconic like Frida Kahlo's flowery hair decoration. The artist had her own sense of fashion and emphasized her indigenous roots at a time when others tried to blend in. Here is a crocheted flower decoration, presented by @tibaire in a stunning "self-portrait".
The UN's motto for this year's International Women's Day is "Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world" - unfortunately the most women are leading in is the amount of work they have to shoulder. The impossibility to conform to ever-changing standards, often to women's own detriment, is the subject of this fibre art.
Another famous woman, another icon, but totally different. Or perhaps not so - like Frida Kahlo, Princess Diana tried to stay true to herself in an environment that had strict rules. She became a role model not only through her behaviour, but through her clothes. Like this red evening robe, she seemed to use fashion as a statement. @kattyrochet used sewing and crochet to create a dress for a doll, as elegant and formidable as the famous original.
