Handmade Gift Exchange Goodies!

I recently participated in a handmade gift exchange run by Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous, and thought that I should share some of the lovely things I mailed off to my partner with all of you!

I had cross-stitched this cute deers ornament a while ago, but I finally got around to doing the finishing.



Quick and easy handmade card--I got this houses stamp at the dollar store and just glued on a few shiny flower gems!


I love how this cabled headband turned out! I may have to make a few more of these sometime soon. The pattern is called Criss-Cross Cable Headband, and is a free download on Ravelry,  available here if you're interested. I think the yarn is Blackstone Tweed, or at least something pretty similar to it. (note: when you buy a TON yarn at an amazing yarn store sale like the one Knit-o-matic has once in a blue moon, you will lose a lot of the tags over the years while trying to use up the 80 balls of yarn you bought)

Back and closure:


And here's me wearing the headband, please excuse the messy hair!
