Over the last week I have been making some dishcloths. I am wanting to make them in pure cotton for Christmas presents as well as for little presents here and there. I will make some more cakes of soap as well to go with them I think...
I had my Mum and Stepdad over yesterday. This was a very nice visit and Mum organised dinner which was even better. I showed her the dishcloths and immediately she started talking about when she was a child and a young adult in Austria. Was so nice to hear. Even my menu plan reminds her of what she used to do. I like that and am rather sad though that I don't remember her doing any of those things.
The picture above is a dishcloth that is made from acrylic. I will use them to experiment with. I did get some cotton, 660 metres from Big W as have not been able to find any in any of the op shops around town but it was only 4 ply. I realised that it was too thin and will take it back. Originally I was going to double the ply but this will be too much hassle I reckon.
Mum is going to look for me in her shops up where she lives and see what she can find. She will then post them to me which means I will have plenty of time to make the dishcloths before Christmas. Happy Days!!!
