As you can tell I LOVE our new house! There isn't a thing I would change....well, I take that back. There is this one thing....NO DISHWASHER!!!! Gasp!!! I know, right? Needless to say I go through a lot of sponges. They start to smell so quickly and I just feel like they are infested with germs. I've tried microwaving them after use but that stinks too. Anyway, I spend a lot on sponges. So I did a little research to see if there was a way to use something around the house to make some dishcloths of my own. I found this tutorial on Knitty Bitties. I would have made those, but I still haven't bought printer ink, lol.
So I found an old towel that was on it's last use....and before you get all Josie Grossie on me, sleep safe knowing it was just a hair towel :) And it's white, so it's been bleached. I cut it into a square and used some patchwork binding to finish it off. Now I can make one for each day of the week and not worry about stench and germs.
I also worked on this lovely Mother's Day Pin this weekend. It was extremely labor intensive and my plan was to make one for all the mothers in my life, but I wasn't sure anyone but me would wear it and love it :) It's kinda big and out there, ya know? But how sweet is the little pocket to store a note or picture?
Tutorial found here!
