Making Crafts From Dishcloths

By Carol Hanna 1 1

Does anyone have a book or some ideas on making gift items out of new dish cloths? A friend gave me a pair of pajamas made out of three dish cloths. They are folded to look like a pair of pajamas. Attached to the pajamas is a note that says "We look like pajamas, But, really we aren't. We are just 3 little dish cloths; You will like us a lot. So just take us apart, it really won't hurt. Use us for dishes or just chasing dirt." I'm at work and cannot get a picture of them, but they are so cute. I can take these apart but would like to make this and other things like this.

I've made kitchen angels from dishcloths, and I've also seen bunnies. I made the angels for Christmas gifts, and everyone loved them. They were so cheap to make, I think wrapping them cost more than the angel gifts! It's all folding and tying with ribbons, but hard to explain. One dishtowel folded like a fan longways, then folded in half and tied at the top with a ribbon around the neck to form the head, turn the ribbon to the front and make a bow, one matching dishcloth (the smaller washcloth type) folded like a fan for the arms, put this crossways behind the body. Tie ribbons about an half inch at the ends of each arm to form hands with a bow. Use a matching potholder folded like a fan for the wings, and attach to the body with a ribbon an bow at the waist. Once the wings and arms are tied tightly on, spread the pot holder out to look like wings. Hope this helps.
