Here is my very first project for Thing A Day 3  -  I Heart My Dishes. I wanted to buy a new dish sponge today and while I was looking at all of the square sponges in the store I was inspired to make my own. Square is so boring and with Valentines Day just around the corner I decided to make a heart themed sponge. To make here is what you will need: - pink wash cloth or hand towel - sissors - needle and thread - paper and pen Here I used a pink washcloth that I had hiding in the back of my linen closet. Cut out a perfect heart shape out of paper to make the pattern then place it on the towel to cut out - leave enough around the edge for seam allowance. I hand stiched around the edges about 1/4 inch - turned right side out and stuffed with the scraps of washcloth. Finish off the open end then fluff to get your perfect shape. Now for the entire month of February I will use my themed dish sponge and say "I Heart My Dishes"
