This month's scrap buster project is really quick and easy, but I think you'll love it. And it's just in time to make a last minute Mother's Day gift!
Charm Scraps uses leftover charm squares or fabric from your stash cut into 5" squares to make a stack of mini facial washcloths. They're just the right size for washing your face and removing make up. Whip up a week's worth (or more) and toss them in the laundry on wash day. No more disposable make up remover sheets adding to the landfill.
Bonus: this is laundry you don't have to fold!!
So gather up a bunch of charm squares and a new or gently used towel (or a piece of double sided terry cloth). Cut as many 5" squares of terry as you have charm squares.
Place a charm square right side down on a terry square:
Stitch 1/4" from the raw edges all the way around, leaving an opening on one side to turn. Clip corners:
Turn right side out, push corners out and press:
Make all the rest in the same manner. Top stitch around edges to close openings:
If you're making this as a gift, add a face wash and arrange in a sweet little basket:
These are so cute, they kind of make you look forward to a good face-scrubbing before bed! :)
