About a month ago I picked up a few packets of 3 washcloth mitts from Target for $2.  I love a good clearance sale.  They were apparently 'Christmas' colors – green, red, beige and white, hence they were the only ones on sale. 

The twins love to wear gloves and mitts and are learning how to wash themselves at the moment so I thought they would love these …

BUT, they were a little plain.  I thought the twins would be more inclined to use them if they were a little more fun.  So I decided to try my hand at embroidery (after watching a few on-line video's yesterday).  I'm quite happy with the way Flynn's turned out seeing as this was my first attempt and I had to do it freehand because I couldn't transfer a pattern onto the toweling … I was being impatient and didn't want to wait until today to run to the store to buy the transfer paper I needed, and I wasn't sure if it would work on the toweling or not – any of my readers know if it would, I'd love some advice?

Now to embroider one for Marisol as well … and Jay asked tonight whether I was planning on doing one for him too.  Looks like I may be a little busy.

Don't know about you, but we have a ton of washcloths hidden away in the cupboard that are in a variety of colors and patterns and are never used.  I think I may try my hand at making my own washcloth mitts.  I came across really easy-to-follow instructions at Martha Stewart today.

The octopus is so cute! I can’t resist a bargin either. I should just stay away from the dollar bins at Target altogether!

It is adorable! Anything that makes bathtime fun encourages children to want to take them.

How cute!! Thanks for stopping by. My recipe is really simple and is as follow for the asparagus.I buy one bunch of asparagus, one package of cream cheese and two packages of prosciutto. Trim your asparagus and drizzle with olive oil and dust with salt and pepper. Coat the inside of your piece of prosciutto with cream cheese. Per slice of prosciutto I place 5-6 asparagus and roll and secure with a toothpick. I bake them on a baking pan for about 30 minutes on 350. Just watch for the prosciutto to crisp. Serve immediately. They are so yummy and I can eat every one of them if I let myself. Enjoy!

I love these, and I bet your little ones did, too. I’m thinking that I could applique a little animal on and made the mitt even more impressive to my kiddo. 🙂 She’s so into duckies these days. I bet I could cut one out and “embroider” it onto the washcloth effectively. It’s something to think about. 🙂
