Have you made any cotton face scrubbies? They are so fun and easy to make! And they are so soft to use. They only take minutes to stitch up.
Here’s my take on these little spa items – the center of each scrubby is 2 layers crocheted together with an edging. My favorite cotton yarn to use is I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby. It is so soft and easy to work with!

These cotton face scrubbies can be made in any color and would be great in a spa gift basket with special soaps and lotions. Make several and put them in a pretty jar or tie them with a matching ribbon before adding them to the basket.
