did anyone ever get the pattern for the leaves? My mother had these hanging on the wall next to the stove. They hung by a crocheted ring at the top of the leaves. One cluster of grapes was done in green, the other purple. The beer caps were wrapped in foil before being crocheted. I have a wine theme in my kitchen and dining rooms and these would look great on the wall!

what the heck is a beer cap?...and where would I find them?

I have one of these that my grandmother made in the 1960's, but she covered the caps with fabric, sewed them together and then covered them with doiley's.

I think this is a great way to utilize the caps, and the hot pads are so cute!!! The caps give them a much more stable base...love it!!!

I like project that I can just sit down and crochet without piecing things together, so even though I like the looks of beer cap pot holders I wouldn't make them. jcg1224
