This Cute Rainbow Daze Dishcloth can also be used as a washcloth or whimsical coaster. At a length of 7 inches, it can cover quite a bit of area and clean a lot of little faces or even glassware. It's super easy to work up and you can finish one in about 15 minutes! Make a set for your craft fair inventory or for baby shower gifts.
