Looking for something quick and easy to make for Valentine's Day?  Or maybe a little something to treat yourself to?  This pretty heart motif washcloth will make bath time more fun and is super quick to make.  I just love making washcloths and dishcloths for that instant gratification you get when finishing small projects and they really pretty the place up.
