Tough and Pretty Dishcloths

The essence of farmhouse is tough and pretty
so these dishcloths are perfect
for a farmhouse kitchen ~
Tough terry cloth on one side,
pretty patterns on the other.

Sewing up dishcloths is "sew" easy!
I cut 9 1/2 inch squares from well worn hand towels.
I cut the same size of freshly pressed scrap fabric in coordinating colors.

Then I zipped around the edges with a zig-zag stitch.

They will gently fray in the wash and that's OK.
They're dishcloths after all!

These sewn dishcloths took no time at all.
It was the perfect rainy day project.

Thanks to Julia at Fairview Farm for the idea!

Trust in Him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.
Psalm 62:8
