Free Baby Footprint Dishcloth Pattern

This baby footprint dishcloth pattern was inspired by my love for my friend, Katherine, and her 4th daughter who was born and left to be with the Lord on the same day.  Sweet Ophelia is in Jesus’ arms, along with 3 of my babies who also went to be with the Lord before I could get to know them.  I look forward to the day I get to meet them all!
