I make these little 7 x 7 inch cotton cloths for a lovely little store in northern Texas, The Humble Life, owned by Taylor and April Locke (seriously...the cutest couple and store ever!). Although tedius, I really do love making them. With the holidays literally around the corner, it was time to make a new batch of these little beauties - 'cause they make a seriously perfect stocking stuffer idea paired with one of April's handmade soaps (hint hint...wink wink). Anyway, I usually make a different style cloth, but after making hundreds of the same stitch and style over and over again, I decided to switch up the stitch this time. I gotta say, I love how they turned out! They are the perfect texture for a body cloth, facial cleanser, or even washing the dishes! I'm so excited about this new little cloth that I decided to share the FREE pattern with you here on the blog so you have time to make a couple for mom or grandma for Christmas - and order an item or two from The Humble Life, of course.
