We go through wash cloths very quickly around here and it seems I never have enough. I also hate to buy them because since we go through so many I buy the cheapies and they're SO flimsy. This morning I was going to throw away my thick terry cloth bath robe, but then it occurred to me it would make great wash cloths. So, some cutting and zigzagging and wa-la:
Nice, thick, soft wash cloths. I zigzagged some and used another utility stitch on others. In all I made 10, so that should last for a while! I used a pink variegated thread, so the stitching is darker in some places and lighter in others. I love how they turned out and will probably look at the thrift store for bath robes to turn into wash cloths!
