Treat your house guests with Bubbles, our personalised facecloths by Veronica Shaw

With their individual monograms and pretty scallop borders, our three Bubbles washcloths by Veronica Shaw will delight any guests you have to stay at your home. Choose which size you'd like to make, or make all three, and lay them out in the bathroom for your special visitors. Each one is knitted in a bright cotton yarn and finished off with a crocheted border. We've given an example chart for the monogram, simply plot out your required letter on the blank chart provided.
