*NOTE* Here is my problem: after spending FOREVER making this, I washed it the other day after it had been out for a while, and when it came out, here's what it looked like:
SERIOUSLY??? All fuzzy and horrible looking! It is so frustrating to spend that much time on something and have it be basically ruined after one washing. So I just found a new cotton at Meijer - I believe it is Lion Brand. I'll be making something out of it soon and will post my results!!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'd love to have you comment and follow my blog!

  1. I guess it would look like this after a while, since it's a dish towel. Hope your next one comes out the way you want it to look! Thanks for sharing
