Washcloth Roses for Your Bathroom
Make your washcloths look stylish by following these simple instructions. No sewing so you simply shake them and they are functional. Great for guest bathrooms!
Firstly find a square washcloth and lay it out flat. Fold the cloth in half across the diagonal so that you now have a triangle.
From one corner of the triangle start rolling the cloth up along the fold. Continue until you have about a finger length left.
Continue to roll up the cloth to the end of the folded side but turn a small amount of the folded edge outwards to start to form the rose detail.
Ensuring that the end of the roll is trapped, fold the cloth in half as shown. You should have trapped the end of the roll so that it does not come undone.
You now need to turn through the ‘rose part’ of the washcloth so that it is inside the other end of the roll. Your rose should now have appeared and be about half the length of the roll you had made.
Now you just need to tidy up your rose. Draw down the centre of the rose slightly so that it looks more natural. Curl back some of the layers slightly so that they look more like petals. You have now finished your rose!

Enjoy your roses and once you have made one they become quite easy and quick to make. How about a bowl full of them for guests?
