Shout out to a Chibi, who is celebrating her birthday today!  Happy Birthday, Chibi!  I love you!  (Chibi got a visit from her big sister (Yours Truly) and these for her birthday).

 

In keeping with my efforts to decorate my darling Chibi’s bathroom, I whipped up this little thing:

It’s quick and easy, and once you get the basic pattern you can make them in all different shapes and sizes.  Here’s the pattern:
