You know the best thing about being able to sew? When you decide you need something new - you can just go ahead and make it! (Within reason that is!)
Take today for example - for years, I've used facial cleaning sponges like these -
I took one plain, boring face cloth -
Trimmed off all 4 hemmed edges -
Folded in half and cut in 2 -
Quilted each 'square' - (1 straight lines, 1 diagonally)
Added pretty binding (and a hanging loop) -
Enter 2 new facial cloths. Each one is quilted adding a bit of texture, and thus helping with the ever important 'exfoliation'!
Aren't they so pretty?!
I made some of these a few months ago and they've been used (and washed!) so many times that they're now all horrible and scuzzy - and I wouldn't even dare show you a photo of them! Now I've replaced them with these 2 pretty ones and they literally cost about 30p each to make. If I have to use something - I like it to be pretty :)
