Sorry all Captain America is not done. That full time job of mine really gets in the way of my crafting. It keeps me in yarn, that’s probably why I stay.

This pattern was up at my shop, but it hasn’t been purchased yet so I decided to take it down. It’s one of my favorites so enjoy.

BTW if you can’t find a 30mm eye you can embroider one on instead.
