It Is Easy Being Green: Reusable Makeup Remover Pads

I used to use throw away makeup remover pads. Sometimes it would be the dry cotton circles that I would put the remover on, and other times I would use the pre-moistened kind. About a week ago, I was playing around with some cotton yarn and a crochet hook, trying to make circles, and came up with these. I thought they would be perfect to use in place of the removers I had used before.

What You'll Need:

Cotton Yarn
Size I Crochet hook
Needle for weaving in ends

These are very easy and quick to make!

1. Chain 4
2. Join with slip stitch to make circle
3. Chain 2 (counts as 1st double crochet)
4. DC 14 into circle
5. Join with slip stitch at the top of Chain 2
6. Chain 2
7. DC in same stitch as Join/Ch2
8. 2 DC in each stitch around (you'll have 30 DC)
9. Join with slip stitch at top of chain 2
10. Weave in ends

You're done! This is a great way to use up scrap yarn you have left over from making dishcloths, potholders, or anything else you use cotton yarn for. :-)

These also work great in the shower with body scrub. So many possibilities!

Display them in a nice glass container.....

....or in a basket (this one is a little big, but it was what I had on hand!)

These are so soft and easy on your skin.

I hope you'll give this easy pattern a try.
