Christmas Candle Cloth & Towels Freebies

Just a quick freebie for Christmas before I forget...again. This is my Christmas Candle Dishcloth as requested by Shirl. She likes to pretty her cloths up so feel free to embellish or not. The pattern doesn't include instructions for the little sparkles but you can add them where ever you choose if you'd like to do that. I'm also including the patterns for the matching towels....these haven't been tested yet so if you do them and find any errors...please YELL! Enjoy!
