scrubbies

 I decided to try making some facial scrubbies - the idea behind these is to be green by not using cotton balls/pads that get thrown in the garbage - good idea and I like to be 'green'.  So I tried out a couple of patterns - one has some nubbies (that you can barely see in the photo) on one surface that are created by making a single crochet picot - the other has a lacey edge - I prefer the one with the lacey edge.  ^^  I like them and now need to make more.  I use them with baking soda.  I like a sugar scrub for my hands when I'm gardening or painting/staining but don't use it on my face.

 You will find instructions here and here .


a friendly look, a kindly smile,
one good act and life's worthwhile

Those are great. I like the lacy one best too. I should make a couple for my house as mine are in really bad shape. They work so well.

Very pretty and so very useful! Now if only I crocheted, I would be set. Enjoy your weekend, Kate!

That is a great idea, but I use my hands, lol.
I have a scrub for my face, when I wear makeup.

Great idea, crochet is one craft I cannot manage due to my hand restrictions but they look great
