Friday’s Featured Business: Chamblee Crochet

I love to crochet. It’s one of my favorite hobbies and honestly I’m not that great at it. LOL But I love it, and when I have time to crochet I really enjoy the feeling of using my hands and creating something practical. When I came across Chamblee Crochet, run by Chief Crocheter Ashley, I was astounded at some of her work. You can find many of the regular items that are crocheted – hats, mittens, snuggly blankets. However, it’s her talent at recreating photos into a crochet masterpiece that blew my mind.

Yes, that’s a very young Stevie Nicks there!! I included the original photo so you could see what an amazing recreation this is!

Then there’s this amazing Hermoine recreation. I know there’s a ton of HP fans out there who’d get a kick out of owning something like that!

I asked Ashley about the process of recreating photos. She says, “Once I have a picture, I can do a variety of different options (color wise) … Full color is the most difficult, just because the shades are harder to find. There are also neutrals, grays/blacks, & hues of one shade (5 shades of pink, etc.).”  I asked if she can do pics of your pets or grandkids or whatever you want. And the answer was YES! Okay, who’s thinking Colin Farrell should be next?! 😀

Here is a great overview of many of the handmade items Ashley makes at Chamblee Crochet. I even saw a picture on her Facebook page that was so great – a child who was holding a doll she had made to keep them company during a trip to the hospital. You can tell there’s a lot of love and time that go into these great handmade creations!
