Isn't this the cutest thing. 2 Dishcloths Ribbon Darning needle (depends on open weave of cloths) Start by folding the the two dishcloths in half, side by side, with the open part facing each other. Use some ribbon to sew/weave the top of the pants by sewing all the way across the pants at one end, this is to make the waist band so about a 1/2 inch from the top. Pull it slightly to gather the waistband and make it ruffled. Make sure you sew/weave through all the layers. Take the ribbon and tie 3 bows down the middle to form the gusset of the pants, a simple in and out of each side of the pant legs will be fine. Then place two bows at the bottom of each towel to form the pant legs. Sew/weave the ribbon at the bottom of each pant leg to form a hem around 1/2 inch from the end of the cloth then pull it till it gathers the pant leg to form a ruffle. Print or write out this poem and attach it to the pants. Poem: Now don't get excited, Don't be misled. These aren't for you, but your dishes instead. Just pull on the bow, take out the stitches, You've gained two dishcloths but lost your britches!

This is not the type of thing that would appeal to me, but I have to admit that I am very impressed with the originality of the idea. You have managed to create an amusing and decorative item from the very basic of raw materials. I am not likely to make these, but I really admire your creative spirit.

Thank you but I didn't come up with the idea but I can't wait to make these. I found it on the web but can't remember where I found it. I am just glad that someone can enjoy these.

I do this exact same thing (poem and all) with dishcloths that I make. I crochet 2 dishcloths from the kitchen cotton or peaches n cream or sugar n cream yarn. Everyone loves them. Makes a quick and easy gift.
