    Crochet gifts I think are the best gifts! If you get started now you can have a handmade holiday.

    Welcome Snappy Tots.

    Most Sunday mornings I like to pull my hair up, rather than spending a lot of time on it. I wanted a headband that would be light enough to wear year round and could be worn with anything. This band is thinner than most, with a lattice look around the sides and bow in front. This is designed to match my Sunday Mornings Scarf.
