I have been making more crocheted gifts then sewing lately. hmmmm. Handmade washrags are the big, new gift. So I use 100 percent cotton, try to find thread made in American. Yes, I do still think that is important. I got this in a big cone at Wal Mart. Love the shading.
The little sack actually has a bar of baby soap in it. You wash up, rinse the bag, then hang to dry. I wasn't sure that was a good ideal, but supriseling, it dries fine, and always looks clean. My girls love using them. I need to whip some up for Christmas gifts.
