Around this time of year, I typically have everything figured out except for last minute gifts. I was racking my brain the other day for gift ideas for a friend and I came up with a great idea.
A self-care kit with lotions and face masks. Just little ways to treat herself and de-stress. And I decided this washcloth set would be the perfect addition. A nice handmade touch.
These washcloths are perfect for pampering. They’re stitched up using a beautiful lemon peel stitch and are made out of a 100% cotton yarn. Perfect for mild exfoliation and sensitive skin.
The washcloths even have little loops to hang them up. And they’re easy to care for because they’re machine washable and dryer safe. You can get a crochet kit here with 2 skeins of cotton yarn and a digital pdf pattern.
These are a great addition to a gift basket, or use them as a stocking stuffer. Whatever you choose, they’ll be appreciated.
