annual dishcloth swap

dishcloth swap cloths!

I mentioned the Annual Dishcloth Swap not too long ago when I was testing out different dishcloth patterns. I ended up not using any of the patterns I tested out, instead I went with something I accidently fell upon. I discovered this pattern while making this pillow, it was a fudge up but I liked the texture so much that I decided a dishcloth would be great to make!

I absolutely love how these cloths turned out! The texture actually makes me feel giddy, I think it's so great. I took pictures of them on a tablecloth I found at my parent's house, my grandma made it years ago.

  1. ooo so pretty, love the photos too btw :)

  2. My African Flower pillow did not turn out so I frogged it down a bit and then made a jar cover. I might actually be able to get enough done properly to make these dishcloths. Love the color combinations. And your grandma's tablecloth! Best wishes, Tammy

  3. Lovely! I've never seen the African Flower done in a single color. It's very effective! Nice work!

  4. Very lovely pattern. I think the different colors all look great!

  5. Wauw! That looks so cool! The texture of the corner parts is amazing... I can't stop looking at it :)

  6. I love these & the colours are awesome!

  7. Thank you for stopping by! I'll have to keep an eye out for kids foam mats to use as a blocking square as I can't find anything local to me! x

  8. Wow, those are nice. I came from "Scotty's Place" she put a link to you as she is making some of these. I love your Grandma's tablecloth, it's amazing! You are so fortunate to have such a lovely item to remind you of her. Hey, I've read Gone with the Wind years ago; it's a fabulous book, so much better than the movie and the movie is great IMHO! She goes to show us that we should never have sold any of our American soil to foreign investment since "the land (soil)" is the only thing that lasts. You've inspired me to make some dishcloths!!! Hope you are having a fantastic summer with your little ones!
