I read somewhere that you should always bring a guest-post tutorial back to your own blog, after a certain amount of time, of course. So I'm doing just that! I did a guest post on Design By Nicolina's blog during her Disney week for this adorable Mickey Mouse-inspired coffee cozy and wanted to share it with my readers as well.
You can see the original post HERE.
*As always, you’re more than welcome to sell finished products from this pattern. I only ask that you give me credit and link back to this pattern. Please play nice and don’t claim the pattern or photos as your own. If you do end up making a hat from my pattern, I’d love to see the results! Link me to your blog, email me a photo (katy@handmadeescapade or post it to my Facebook page. I want to see what you can do!!
