{Who's That} Accessorize With Feather Girl and a GIVEAWAY!-CLOSED

I'm so happy to have my real-life friend Heather over here today to show you her cute creations.  I've known her for years!  She recently started an accessories shop where she sells her uber cute crocheted creations called Accessorize With Feather Girl.  When she asked if she could be a guest over here in response to my call for guests, I immediately said yes!  You will love her and the cute things she makes!  

Thanks for having me on your blog Courtney!!  I have known Courtney for a loooong time and am always amazed by her creativity!! 
Heather's the name, crochet is my game!!!  I am a stay at home mom and have been for the better part of the past 16 years.  I started crocheting when I was about 9.  My mom would make little projects here and there and thought that I needed to learn some kind of craft .... something that I could, eventually pass on to my daughter one day.  I use her for a lot of my pics, because she inspires me to be creative and I am passing my love of crochet on to her!  

Me and my Muse!
I picked up my crochet hook again in December of this past year, after seeing some scarves a friend had made.  I got to thinking ... hmmmm .... I bet I could do that!! So, I got online to get some ideas of things and started crocheting again.  I don't make up all of my own patterns, and will be posting links to the ones that I have used, as I appreciate the work that others have done to come up with these patterns, and want to give credit where credit is due!  I do, upon occasion, try to find ways to make things more to my liking, instead of using an exact pattern. 

One of my favorite things that I have done is a cell phone case.  These were inpired by my daughter, who is 9.

I love these little "bags" They started out as IPod Touch cases, my muse was looking for something to carry hers in and asked me to make her one ... I could tell that the first one I made her was not really what she was looking for.  And as I was working on something else, I came up with the pattern for this. Believe it or not, I was making baby shoes when I started playing with this style of case.  The first one I made was a solid color, then I started experimenting with colors, stitches and buttons and this was the result!  There is a back pocket that accomodates a cell phone or ID ..or whatever you want!! 

This is actually the first pattern I tried! It was just a plain hat, no embellishment on it, but anyone that knows me, knows that I love "accessories"!!  I changed the size hook from the original pattern and added a bow and Voila!!  I LOVE these hats, they are fun and can be made to match any outfit or jacket!!  I love doing them in stripes to match Tennessee's favorite team ... the Vols!! 

My daughter loves headbands, so when I saw something similar to this one online, I got busy!!  I love crocheting different styles of flowers or adding crochet bows for fun and flirty looks!!

These are just a few of the things that I make!  I love being able to make something that will bring a smile to someone's face!! 
Again .... thank you Courtney ... you are amazing!!
