cute washcloth and bathtoy in one
When I was little my mum played with a washcloth puppet to make bath time a fun time for me and my siblings. About a week ago my mum said she had found something very dear to her while cleaning the attick. She showed an old ragged hippo puppet, the washcloth from my childhood.

So... when I started thinking about a future project I immediately remembered the amount of washcloths I had lying around in my room (trust me I have a lot of them).
I don´t know why but I made one similar to the hippo...and now that I've made that one I don't quite know what to do with it since I never even use washcloths... Luckily I'm 2 washcloths down XD

I love it! I'm confused as to when you sew up the sides of the washcloth, though. Thanks.
