Valentine's Giveaway

Hello!
I'm happy to announce that I have a small giveaway today. I used a lovely Missoni fabric recently and got a fair amount of remnant. Then I got an idea too!

Click to enlarge photographs.
Toys are not included in the giveaway, as probably suspected.
If you would like the headband that I made as my Valentine gift, I'll be happy to send it to you. This brown-ish shabby handmade headband might not be very perfect for dressing up, but I insist to tell you that the fabric is perfect and lovely, and I also mutter that it has to be most useful for anybody who washes the face in the morning! Happy washing plus smooth and bright face guaranteed (but you shouldn't trust me).
'Clover Needle Sharpener & Polisher'
Moreover, I would like to add one more gift onto the headband. My headband can't be good enough for you to tap your keyboard, of course. A 'Clover Needle Sharpener and Polisher' will be sent along with the headband, to make this giveaway relatively decent. I think this tool is too cute to ignore! I know many of us seamstresses who sew clothes don't sharpen the hand sewing needles very often, but I guess you would like to keep this antique-looking lovely gadget in your tool box just in case, wouldn't you?

I managed to make two of them and my one looks almost the same as the one for you.
If you like to get my Valentine present, please leave your comment below. I am going to close the comment box at noon on 21th(JST=UTC+9) and will pick one winner by random drawing if there are more than one comment on this post. Anybody in any area on our planet can be involved in the draw. Please do not forget to fill in your e-mail address (which will not be disclosed to the public), otherwise to make sure that I can send you a message through your commenting ID, because those comments without any valid e-mail address will not be included in the draw.

Wishing you a lovely Valentine's day!
Thank you for visiting my blog regularly.
