This is a cute pattern. I had to look at it twice because the white part almost looks like fabric, which adds a nice touch. I would probably make this for a gift or just for show. I would hate to use it. A nice pattern for the holidays. Thank you.

Cannot decide about this one definitely it would make dish washing a more cheerful activity, but would one want to actually use this in dishwater or to wipe off the stove? Hard to think of it...
