Picture of How to Make a Vintage Kitchy Crafty Gift

I saw this cute little vintage kitchy craft hanging in my grandmothers kitchen some years ago. I believe one of her friends made it for her - so I just had to update the look and make one for myself. Its so easy to make and so much fun to do! With June weddings approaching, I thought what a great little gift to give away at bridal showers or if you just want to have something cute to hang in your kitchen.

Attach this little poem to the craft:

There are S.O.S pads in my Bra
But don't be misled
They're not for you
But your dishes instead
So untie the bows & clip the stitches
You've gained three dishcloths
But lost you bra & britches

Step 1: The Ingredents

Here is what you will need to make

3 dish clothes
2 SOS cleaning pads
some ribbon
yarn
needle and thread

Step 2: Making the Bra

With the dish cloth open, place the 2 SOS pads in the middle then fold over the top then the bottom - almost like a burrito shape!

Step 3: Finishing the Bra

With fancy ribbon gather the middle and tie off - finish with a dainty bow.
Then on both sides of the SOS pads use some yarn to gather and tie off - just like as you did to the middle. This will form the bra shape - very easy!

Step 4: Making the Pants

With the other 2 dish rags you are going to make the pant legs.
Fold over the left then the right sides - you will make another burrito shape - I'm getting hungry!

Step 5: Finishing the Pants

With a needle and thread run a simple stitch about 2 inches from the top - pull tight to gather then tie off in the back. Do this for both of the dish rags that you folded.

Step 6: Adding the Ribbon to the Pants

On the bottom of both pant legs use that fancy ribbon to make cute little bows. Gather the bottoms and tie off with the ribbon.

Step 7: Attaching the Bottoms to the Bra

With you needle and thread attach the bra to the bottoms. Add the same fancy ribbon to the top to the bra in a loop to make it hang on the kitchen wall.

If you give this as a gift attach this little poem:

There are S.O.S pads in my Bra
But don't be misled
They're not for you
But your dishes instead
So untie the bows & clip the stitches
You've gained three dishcloths
But lost you bra & britches

Have fun making this cute kitchy craft for you kitchen or a gift.

Speaking of 'vintage kitchy craft hanging in my grandmothers' what ever happened to those woolen woven owls with wood (alliteration?), I remember seeing those all teh time when I was growing up. I wonder what will be the decoration the toddlers of today will grow to dislike then update?
