A Birthday Gift

It's my friends 70th birthday today and so here is the first washcloth gift I have made so far, using some of the cotton I bought at the weekend.


My friend is a really girly lady if you know what I mean and loves things soft and feminine so I thought pink shells would be just the thing.  (Pattern here)


I love this colour and I'm sure she will too, I enjoyed making this the worst bit is the sc edging trying to get your hook in the tiny spaces but it's worth it in the end.

I also made a little basket in white cotton

and then filled it with sweet scented goodies 

I hope she'll like it.  

                  Happy Birthday Doreen xxx

  2. What a lovely handmade present Linda.
    I've sometimes hooked wash/dish cloths to learn a new stitch/pattern - small enough to finish and large enough to establish the pattern!
    I'm sure your gift will be well received.

  4. Just discovered you through Hooking up on Hump Day.
    I love this! What gorgeous colour.
    I've made quite a few myself. My daughter and I have been using them over the past year and they still look as good as new.

  15. What a wonderful gift, Linda! I'm sure your friend will love it. The washcloth came out very nice; my least favorite part of crocheting washcloths is the single crochet edging.
    Take care :-)

  19. Hi Linda. Such a lovely, thoughtful gift for your friend. I hope she had a wonderful birthday. And I think your daughter will love the doily. It's such a beautiful color and it will complement her house and rug so well. Thanks for visiting me and your kind comment on my washcloth. Yours are all so very lovely. I will write and post the pattern for mine as I did it as I went. I think I will also post the other ones I have already made. Have a great rest of the week my dear friend :)
