Special thanks to a Facebook message that let me know the pattern link was broken for the Vintage Project Basket. Now that it’s fixed, let me share with you this project that still has a home in my studio.
Jason’s been goading me for, uh, too long to make a handle cover for our skillet. We’ve seen them at the store and while they
