The incredible hand-crafted crochet work collection “A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do,”  is made by the Stockholm sculptress and video artist Carina Bergholm Sunden.

The sugar water coated handguns, TV and tapes show the power of the DIY movement. These hand-crafted pieces have a revolutionary touch because of the unexpected character of the chosen designs (who would really expect crochet guns, video tapes or TVs?).

Implications - These Hellocraftlovers Handicrafts are an unconventional twist on the art of crochet and knitting. While scarves, hats and mittens are an undying subject of the art form, these modern and creative touches reflect the interests of a younger generation of artists looking for art which imitates life.
