Handmade Christmas – Laser Cut Cross Stitch Edition

I decided to just lump all of the laser cut cross stitches I did into one post since I still have quite a few gifts to show off still! First up we have this color wheel necklace.

It's always nice to do a more concrete picture and see it come together. You can get your own pattern here ... Read More
