Of course, everyone needs a bottle cap hot pad. Very handy for setting hot dishes/pans on. I wonder what ever happened to the ones that ratted around Mom's and Grandmas...

I like the string holder...does anyone in the world except maybe Martha Stewart keep a ball of string in their kitchen?

And we all need a Pappy and Mammy doll, along with a flower pot cover.

I think one could make a steam punk vest out of crocheted bottle caps. Maybe I will whip one up for Christmas.

The little earrings are cute, I think.

My Grandmother made bottle cap hot pads. Hers were red and white. I also remember some that looked like a cluster of grapes. They weren't made with twist off caps!

Thank you so much for these patterns. I love the older patterns and they're not easy to find.
