Stash-buster scrubbies.  I spent the afternoon making these, and they are quick and fun!  A great project for a beginner, too, because (A) I'm a beginner :), and (B) Besides single crochet, you learn easy increases and decreases.  Great stash-buster, used up a bunch of my leftover cotton from previous dishcloths, and my hoarding pile got a little smaller!  Best of all, there's a video to follow along which was awesome:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J84jxmGMV5Y  ~Heather
