Stairway to Dishcloths

20140226-115453.jpg
I feel really strongly about making supplies for the home in the home. It is a lost art. People are too quick to buys things that cost too much money, have wrapping that just goes in landfills, and is of a lower quality.

This is a neat dishcloth pattern that looks like descending stairs. It is basic enough for even a beginner, but has enough bumps to scrub your pots and pans clean without scratching them.

    That’s almost too cute a pastern for a dish cloth. : )

  2. I agree with you completely. It’s so easy to pick things up at a department or super store that people aren’t learning basic skills. Thanks for sharing the pattern for the dishclothes. I’ll be sure to use it.
