I recently finished these small microfiber cloths for a local Montessori classroom. These were a really quick (30 min for all 4) and inexpensive make, so I thought I’d share the easy method I used to make them.
Finished size is 8×8 inches
All you need is:
- a 16×16 inch microfiber cleaning cloth (I used Kirkland Signature’s yellow microfiber cloths)
- a pair of scissors
- sewing thread
- a sewing machine
Take the 16×16 cloth and cut it into 2, 8×16 inch pieces. Cut each 8×16 piece in half again to create 4 – 8×8 inch cloths.
Warning: microfiber sheds like crazy when cut, so have a vacuum at the ready. 🙂
Since I don’t have a serger, I used the overlock stitch on my sewing machine to prevent the edges from shedding anymore. I used my walking foot to keep the fabric from snagging.
Repeat for the other 3 pieces.
And that’s it!
Let me know if you’ve made these or any other Montessori materials!
