This is a simple and functional project. It uses up and scrap you have from other projects and results in pretty and functional wash clothes. If you would like a set of your own, but do not want to make them, They can be purchased in The Time Travelers Market Place. Feel free to send me a note if you are looking for anything specific. I am always happy to discuss special orders.
