Pattern Description:

I needed a cute gift for my cousin's housewarming. But all I really had was yarn scraps that didn't match very well. I wanted to make something more than just tawashis and scrubbies though, so I came up with this.

She adapts to all different styles, and can be made out of pieces to small for anything else.
