2015 Holiday Blog Hop Post Number #9 Holiday Headband

Well it seems we have had a few hiccups this week, and the latest Holiday Blog Hop post did not go out as planned.

We have therefore had a shuffle around, and since I had this one all ready to publish, this is now my week!

Hope you enjoy this simple pattern for a clever little headband that will fit from a child to an adult, and is totally adaptable for any size.

Without further ado - welcome to this week's Holiday Blog Hop!
