Frilling Fashionista: Amber’s Handmade Creations


Today’s Frilling Fashionista is really a Frilling Creativista!  Meet Amber, crochet extraordinaire.  She has been crocheting up some accessory goodness lately, and I couldn’t wait to show you.   Some of my favorites are the fascinators she makes and wears regularly:

Here, her daughter models a barrette version…

B modeling a headband…

And a series of bracelets she’s been wearing and giving as gifts…

So cute, right?  The yellow one came to me for my birthday.  For the record I would just like everyone to know that I was the one who taught Amber basic chain and single crochet stitches waaaaay back when we were in college.  I take no credit for how amazingly her skills have progressed since :)

I know it isn’t winter anymore, far from it here in Texas, but I also had to show you the cute winter hats she makes.  This one was made for her kids’ pediatrician, who saw her son in a baby-sized one and wanted one adult-sized.

The aforementioned baby-sized owl version, modeled by Amber’s adorable baby son:

And a cute little girl’s hat with a pink rosette:

Hurray for handmade fashion accessories!  Amber, you seriously FRILL me.

BTW, folks: Amber is willing to make YOU a handmade accessory.  Send her a facebook message to inquire about designs and pricing.
