Every issue of Craft Leftovers Monthly is full of patterns, tutorials, and fun little snippets. What are these snippets I am referring to? Well, that varies from month to month. Because October’s issue was all about Falling into Fall, I filled the pages with patterns, tutorials, and thoughts on crafting outside as well as cozying up with fall crafting. Here is one of my favorite pages from this month’s issue about what I’ve learned about drying gourds:

You can get the October issue for just $7.00 during the month of October, a pretty good deal since it has 4 patterns, an interview, 2 recipes, and a collection of fun things like the page above.

Have you dried gourds before? What’s your best “learned the hard way” tip?

Happy crafting!
