|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. :)
