Friday Finish: Facial Fluffs
These are perfect for using up scraps - fabric scraps and batting scraps. I had made several sets for friends several Christmases ago, and decided they were the perfect project to bring camping. I really wanted to sew up a quick finish.
The organic cotton knit sherpa I used makes them oh so soft on your face, and they wash up really well. I like the fact that the face fluffs are softer than a washcloth and aren’t disposable like a makeup removing wipe. It’ll be interesting to compare to the one I have at home that has batting inside rather than the extra square of sherpa. Batting scraps are more cost effective, so if there is no difference I will go back to one layer of fabric, one of batting, and one of sherpa. I definitely have plenty of batting scraps at home.
I used extra 5.5” Carolyn Friedlander squares from my EPP project and I think that is a good size. Last time I believe I used charm squares and the tutorial used 6” squares; this seems to be a good compromise. The only drawback to this project is that sewing with the knit sherpa is a bit tricky - it tends to shift when sewing around the edges. Possibly if I changed my foot or needle?
Does anyone know if there is a homemade “recipe” for the Neutrogena wipes? When I travel, I do tend to bring them with me so I don’t have to worry about having liquid if I am only flying with a carryon or just the extra weight of cleansing and moisturizing jars. I feel bad about the waste though and would like to have a “solution” for placing these face cloths in that would serve the same purpose as the disposable facial cleaning wipe. Please let me know if you do. In the meantime, I’ll do some research.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy stitching,
