On a trip to Spotlight this week, I picked up a pack of 6 white Face Washers for $4.99. I love a good bargain and they were great value but are a little boring. I have decided to challenge myself to decorate them using different techniques so I have a stack of pretty face washers to use as gifts. Face washers can be great gifts for friends, Nana’s, baby showers, house guests etc. Face washers would also be perfect for a fête or craft stall. You can partner them with some nice soap or body products.
The first project in our Face Washer Challenge is a pretty face cloth with hand crocheted trim.
Face Washer with Crochet Trim
First up, I delved into my fabric stash and used some pretty Flower Sugar fabric and pink gingham to make a fabric band that went across the bottom of the face washer. It was finished off with a simple crochet shell edging in pink 3 ply crochet cotton along the bottom edge.
If you would like to make your own you will need:
- white face washer
- strip of floral fabric that is 3 inches wide x (width of face washer + 1 inch)
- trip of gingham fabric that is 1 1/2 inches wide x (width of face washer + 1 inch)
- pink crochet cotton, 3 ply
- crochet hook, size 2.5 mm
I made the Face Washer with Crochet Trim using the same method as the Guest Towel with Crochet Trim. Check out this post for step by step instructions on adding the fabric and the pattern for the crochet shell edging. If you don’t crochet, you could add some ready-made crocheted lace or trim, or else leave the bottom edge plain.
Stay tuned for the next project in the Face Washer Challenge.
