Since January 1st I have been making more of an effort to wear make-up on a daily basis. This has changed my bedtime routine, and I find myself using make-up remover before washing my face in the evening. With make-up remover comes those disposable cotton pads. Every time I throw one away, I feel kinda bad. The other day, I ran out of disposable cotton pads and thought, if I am going to cloth diaper my baby, I should be be using reusable make-up pads. With that thought, I sat down to watch a movie and decided I would make my own %100 cotton pads with some scrap yarn and a crochet hook.
- Size 5.5mm (I-9) Crochet Hook
- Scrap Yarn
Note: For This project I used Blue Sky 100% Organic Worsted Cotton
Chain 4, then join with a slip stitch to the first stitch.
Row 1: Chain 1, *puff stitch (yarn over, insert the hook into the stitch, pull strand through, do the same 3 more times then pull your yarn through all 9 loops on the hook, close the puff with a chain), chain 1, repeat * 7 times then join with a slip stitch to the top of the first puff stitch and move with a slip stitch into the gap between the first & second puff. 8 puff st.
Row 2: Chain 1, 1 puff stitch into each gap all the way round. Note that you don’t chain between the stitches like you did on the first row. Once you have 8 puff stitches, join with a slip stitch to the first puff stitch.
