Earlier this month I participated in a craft project with a group of fiber artists that created yarn bombing panels to celebrate the BTS concerts in Vegas. The idea was to make panels with appliques inspired by the “Permission to Dance” theme. Each of us worked on our own appliques for each panel to be displayed at the stadium. I decided to crochet road signs with BTS songs for one of them.
I got the idea from the signpost in the music video of PTD, but I just changed the names of the cities to songs to make it more fun. I used felt to cut the letters, I did it manually because I don’t have a Cricut. When I finished the signs I sent them to Carolyn, the crafter who knitted all the background for the appliques. She is super creative and really made a beautiful panel to display the signpost. She also made a panel for each member.
This was my contribution to this project, but there were a lot of participants and we ended up with a lot of panels. Some made whales, purple hearts and balloons, etc… Everybody was so creative and inspiring. I didn’t go to Vegas but the ones who did worked really hard on finding the right location and set up the yarn bombing display on the same day they went to the concert. Here are all the pictures they took of the final setup:
