A few weeks ago, I made several baby wash cloths as part of a custom order for a friend plus a couple of extras for my own kiddos. I used Cuddle and Terry cloth fabrics from Shannon Fabrics. My children love using them so much, I decided to make a few more, but this time, I used some images from the Superhero Comic Strip Cuddle Panel to make them a set of Superhero Cuddle Wash Cloths!
The rest of the Superhero Comic Strip Cuddle Panel was used to make my son a really cool and super soft Superhero blanket to match his Superhero floor pillow. See my guest post at My Cuddle Corner for a tutorial on how to make the floor pillow.
Aren't these wash cloths fun! I used my free tutorial found HERE and modified the dimensions to be 9" x 9" since that is what the Superhero squares measured. The Cuddle fabric side lathers up a lot and because it is so soft, it's ideal for washing over sensitive boo-boos. The Terry cloth fabric side is soft, too, and feels just like a typical wash cloth (great for scrubbing off dirt, and markers, and temporary tattoos, etc.).
I added a little pocket that you slip your finger tips into to help make it easier to grip the cloth when washing a baby or toddler. The pocket can be flipped to either side of the wash cloth.
Now we have a whole collection and enough to use every day without me having to wash clothes!
