Maggie ~~ I can hardbly believe it’s been almost a year since you started your Dish Cloth Challenge. I have enjoyed each and everyone of them.
I used #72 to make a pillow for my bedroom. All I had to do was: follow instructions you posted for the dish cloth, continuing until I got the size I wanted, and add a nice little edging. It turned out really nice (because I had a nice pattern to begin with). If I knew how to post a picture of my pillow, I would. But, alas, I don’t know how to post a pic on your site.
Again, just wanted to say “thank you” for all the lovely patterns you have provided.
I could never afford to buy a web cam or a fancy phone to take pics. Thank-you for all the patterns,Maggie. I have made several gifts already ,using them.I also purchased the book,”Crazy Coasters!”
