Knitted washcloths and crocheted washcloths are nice gifts. They’re a really nice handmade thing to share. To make them more appreciated, I package them with a few bars of fancy soap. I knitted two washcloths (size 8 needles) in the Sugar ‘n Cream white for my friend who has a birthday on Saturday. I used the Berry Basket Pattern which you can see on the right.
I packaged the washcloths together by first creating a covered cardboard bottom (4×4″). I used scrapbook paper to cover both sides. I adhered the paper to the cardboard with Spray Mount.
I then folded the washcloths, placed them on the covered cardboard bottom, and then tied a ribbon around the cloths (crossing it in back). The cardboard bottom makes it easier to tie the cloths together with the ribbon: it prevents them from getting scrunched up.
I made four unique gift tags and used one to complete my gift package. I’ve made the tags available to you to print and use on your gift packages. There are two tags for knitted cloths and two for crocheted cloths. All you’ll need is some white cover stock paper to use in your printer, a pair of scissors, and a hole punch. Enjoy!
I also completed a couple of circular washcloths which I’ll give away at some point. One washcloth is crocheted and the other is knitted. I used Sugar ‘n Cream yarn for these washcloths as well.
