Wedding fascinator

My spell check doesn’t like the word ‘fascinator’, and I don’t blame it. It’s slightly better than “head thingy”, which is what I’ve been going with up till now.

I mentioned in March that I was working on a crochet project. Now that the bride has had a chance to wear it I’m ready to share photos 🙂

I learned some basic lace-making for the purpose. I’d be happy to post a tutorial if anyone wants one (leave a comment). The bride’s favourite flowers are all very difficult to crochet flat, but I’m quite happy with the amaryllis design I came up with (see the aforementioned post). The design on the other side is not representative of anything in particular; it was inspired by some lovely images of crochet I found on the web. There’s a tiny shamrock in one corner for luck.
I’m open to the idea of making these by commission, if you’d be interested please leave a comment or take a look at my Etsy shop.
