New Item In My Shop

Sock Monkey Make Up Remover Scrubbies

This week I will be adding a new item for my shop, chenille face scrubbies. These are not a new item for me to make I mostly sell them locally but I have a bit of a break before my next offline event and thought I would list a few in my Etsy shop.

I had actually begun to make these a few years ago when I made burp cloths and would save the small leftover chenille scraps. I would put these into scrap quilts or make the scrubbies. I happened onto a bag of these little squares early in the winter and decided to make them for local shows.

Simple in design, really just chenille on one side and cotton fabric on the other side, for the larger sized ones I interlined them with a layer of flannel, just to give a little more heft to the scrubbie.

Great way to cut down on paper waste and can be used over and over. Scrubbies are machine washable and dryer safe, the chenille and flannel when included have been pre-washed to minimize shrinking.

I will be offering 2 sizes, a make up remover size that is about 3 x 3 inches, and a larger size or like a mini washcloth that is 4 x 4 inches. I tie them up in cotton white yarn embellished with a few pony beads, so a cute gift should you need something to compliment a bath and beauty basket. Often when I sell them locally I am often told they will actually be used as coasters, so you have options with these colorful cuties.

I think I have about 4-6 sets to add this week you will find them in my Miscellaneous Goodness Section, they are priced $5-7.00 per set.
