I needed some inexpensive, but thoughtful gifts for a number of people who have been helping me with my small business this year. I was able to pick up packs of Christmas towels and matching hot pads for $5. Each pack makes two angels and you have an oven mitt left over. Makes a nice teacher gift for a lady.
Time To Make: About 10 minutes.
Level Of Difficulty: Easy enough for a grade schooler.

Editor's Note: Although these are made in Christmas patterns, these could be made with other styles of towels and hot pads for anytime of year.

RE The Editor's Note: I absolutely agree! I sent this in during the Christmas holidays, but was thinking how cute it would be for bridal showers. You could use them as prizes for games. Make them in the wedding colors, of course! You can use wash cloths and hand towels. Use the wash cloths for the arms and the wings. Cindy
I made a couple of these a few years ago for my mom and my secret sister, they still have them displayed in there kitchens and love them.
I love this idea! I always need towels and think this would be a great gift to give or receive. Can't wait for Mother's Day now that I have the idea!
what can i say that hasn't been said..........?
i love them

Another thoughtful and cheap gift is a few scratchie tickets. They are as little as $1 each and you never know your (well, your client's) luck!

I love this idea. Thanks. I haven't seen 'dishcloths' in Oz. Would you give me the size of the dishcloth used in this please?
