I have to say, I am still loving making washcloths! Quickish, easy and colour filled, what's not to love I guess! Kate over at Just Pootling has put together a lovely post in honour of the humble washcloth, There are lots of lovely examples out there in blogland, I think I will be giving everyone I know a little bundle of washers this Christmas! I am enjoying the combo of red, pink and white in this one, I am going to use the softer pink as a border, what do you think?
And in other exciting (!) news I have finally finished putting my little crochet star kits together. It took me longer than I had thought, I couldn't decide how to package them, and then I started having doubts about the whole thing, so they just sat there for a few days. But I have decided to just put them out there and see what happens.
I ended up wrapping them in brown paper ( you know, a few of my favourite things and all that..) and adding a couple of washi tape stripes for a bit of colour.
Nice and simple and low tech, but still a bit pretty.
I have made up two different colour combos to start with, one a Christmas Star, and the other I call a Sunny Star, in some of my fav colours, a combo I seem to use a fair bit! I have a few other combos to try, but I will see how these two go first.
If you'd like to have a look at them I have put them into my shop today, ready to go!
I'd love to hear what you think of them and any improvements you could suggest. :)
What have you been making today?
I'm joining in with Christina for Made by Hand today too.
