New Pattern In My Etsy Shop - Daisy Dishcloth & Scrubbie Set

Daisy Dishcloth & Scrubbie
Back of Scrubbie

In an earlier post, I showed a potholder with a daisy in the center that I was making for a potholder swap.  I really liked how the daisy turned out and wanted to use it in a new design.  Because the petals on the daisy are raised and textured, it seemed meant to be a dishcloth and scrubbie.  So after playing with yarn for the past few weeks, this is what I've come up with.  The scrubbie has a front and back piece, with a handle stitched to the back. And since it's double thickness, it could also serve as a small potholder.

I also made a set using the new denim colored cotton yarn that Lily's Sugar 'n Cream has come out with.  They have 3 shades, and I used the lightest one called "stonewash".  I really like these denim colors and hope to use them again soon.

And sadly, my first potholder swap did not have a happy ending.  Turns out, the only ones to complete and turn in their 5 potholders was the lady organizing the swap, and myself.  So I'm soon to get back my own potholders.  Such is life sometimes.  :)
