Cute Cat Outfit and Christmas Projects

Kaleigh found this adorable pattern on Ravelery. It's a Candy Corn Cat Sweater. She crocheted it in one evening and put it on her cat. Doesn't Ginger look cute?

I've begun working on Christmas gifts. This year, seeing I'm hanging on to every penny I can, I thought I would make things using what I have. Usually, I see something for someone and go buy whatever I need to make it... even though I could probably improvise with what I already have. So this is a new exercise for me. This first gift is for Corey's and Kyle's girlfriends. I got them each two body washes from Body and Bath, made a drawstring bag and two knitted washcloths each. I only have one gift set photographed as the other is the exact same thing, just a deeper blue washcloth.
During the next few weeks I'll continue to make gifts and show them as I go.

I am CRACKING UP over the cat sweater! It's been a tough start to the week and it made my day LOL Thank you

You will have to tell me where you got the washcloth pattern. I like the edges.

I love those washcloths, but I don't know how to knit. I hinted to my daughter last year to make me some, but alas, no washcloths.
Love your gift and I am sure the recipients will too.
...and the cat sweater...well, let's just say I have never seen one of those before, but it looks great on the cat.
