Lorraine,
They are lovely! Are you including any beauty products? Great idea for my older girls, but I knit:-)
Blessings,
Suzanne

Yes, Suzanne, I am completing the gift with the display dish and special soaps.

These could easily be made by knitting your favorite pattern into a square. I have made knitted kitchen cloths before.

Handmade, homemade gifts are the best. Love these. Can't find that kinda of cotton here unfortunately. I do have some Christmas colored cotton from the States so will work up a washcloth right after I post this comment. :) Have a great weekend. Tammy

These are so lovely! Just setting off for a quiet (with 2 kids) weekend in Italy and I'm taking these two projects with me with the intention of relaxing in front of the hotel fire and crocheting!!
Thank you for sharing them.
