Craft Bomb Your Bike

If you are a subscriber to the Claireabellemakes newsletter you will have found out about my secret project last week. Now, I’m super pleased to share it fully with you all here on the blog….at long last!

Last year I was approached by a publisher and asked to contribute to a new book titled Craft Bomb Your Bike! As an avid cyclist and a huge fan of DIYs, I was really excited to be asked and to be included alongside other craft bloggers whom I follow and admire.


The book includes 20 makes for you and your bike including some fantastic crochet wheel guards and even leg warmers for cycling.

My projects include these pretty ribbon and lace handlebar streamers.


A pom pom bike basket garland….(I just HAD to do a pom pom project).


And circular fabric bunting for your bike basket.


The book is now available for pre-order on Amazon and is released on 29 August. If you can’t wait, the patterns are also available as pdf downloads on the Stitch Craft Create site.

I hope you will agree this is a really exciting project to be involved in and what a perfect book for me! I’ve been bursting to tell you all, especially as people keep linking me to the book as they “thought I would like this” ha!

And it’s great to see people talking about the book on Twitter before it is even out!

  2. Amazeballs! What a perfect and exciting project for you to be involved in. I really want to knit one of those budgies- although I’d keep them in the house rather than on my (neglected) bike or they’d never see daylight! xxx
