Weekly Wash #29: Mini Nancy Cloths

After making some little square cloths and finding so many uses for them, I decided to make more, small versions of some of my favorite cloths. I started with one of the quickest and easiest, Nancy’s Square Washcloths. I hope you will like this quick little project.
