Special thanks to ravelry user theGoodNeighbor for letting me know the pattern link was broken. I’ve dug up the original pattern and put it all straight into this original post. But, if you’d like a tablet or printer friendly pdf version and help this and other Craft Leftovers patterns finding […]
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 aren’t expensive, I can’t stand to spend money on something that I have the supplies lying around for and I know would take about two […]
