These would be a nice way to use up time for the rest of winter. I think I'll make them in bright, springy colors and have them ready to use in March. I think they will make nice gifts, too. Wouldn't they be cute, tied up with a cute ribbon, and attached to a baby gift, or even bridal shower gift?

These would make a great housewarming gift! You can make a set in a bunch of different colors.
