Happy Birthday Kathy!

Happy Birthday to my step mom, Kathy. I hope she has a great day!

I made her these for her birthday. Dustin loves the ones that I made for us and thinks they are the greatest things ever. He thought she might like them too. I think it is the waffle weave muslin that is the secret that makes these so fantastic. They really are so scrubby, and they just get better with time!


I also made her a couple of hand towels to go with the dish cloths. I just used a regular muslin and doubled it for extra thickness. Last time I made the hand towels out of the waffle weave muslin and they were so rough on your hands. So I switched to just regular muslin.


I love this red polka dot binding. I think I might go get some more of this fabric and make some for me (because we all know that I need it!) This is probably one of my new favorite fabrics.

Oh – if you wanted to make some too, I got the pattern from here.

I love those dish cloths...I think I should make some up for holiday gifts (or maybe for the holidays next year with the way I am moving!). Anyways, thanks so much for your kind comments. I made my banner using picnik.com, which is a free photo editing software. The banner size is 600x800 (I think!). I use the minima template in blogger because I like how simple it looks, though recently I've thought of changing it around. My photos that I use are on flickr so when I upload them they are flickr-sized. Anyways, I think I answered all of your questions. Of course, always shout out if you need anything, I'd be happy to help.
