While re-organizing my linens drawers today, I came across this cute little item that my Grandma made up and gave to me way back in the '70's. This would make a fun little addition to a bridal shower, kitchen shower or even a birthday gift. Let me know if you make any, I would like to see.
Take two woven waffle weave dish cloths (fold in half lengthwise)
Threaded length of ribbon or yarn.
Make long basting stitches along "leg" bottoms and at the "waistline", gathering slightly and tying in a bow at the edges.
"Lace" up the front and make a bow at the top. ( See photo)
This little 'poem' was written out and pinned to them.
Don't get excited
Don't get misled
These are not for you
But your dishes instead.
Pull out the ribbon
There are no stitches,
You will have two dish cloths
But you've lost your britches!
