A Wedding Shower Gift

I had such fun making these dishcloths for a dear friend and his fiance. It was especially thrilling to know that this lovely young lady adores vintage and handmade goods ~ somehow makes the work more rewarding that way.  

 For the multi-colored cloths, I just made simple squares of double crochet. For the white cloths, I made squares of single crochet and then trimmed them out in an aqua scallop (sc/hdc/sc then slip stitch into the next second stitch. Repeat)

 I finished off by tying the bundle of five together with a pretty Shabby Chic tag, then tucked these treasures into a bag with some Bath & Body kitchen soaps and a yummy candle. 

What is your go-to handmade wedding shower gift?
