My little sister is just about to move in to her first apartment. For her housewarming gift she has asked me to stock her medicine cabinet with homemade natural remedies. I have taken it upon myself to also throw in a few little extras, like these cotton makeup remover pads.
I had initially seen the idea on Pinterest, but when the time came to make them I found that I was too lazy to go through all my pins to find the pattern (my laziness is surely attributed to the 105 degree weather we’re having today). So I made up my own pattern:
Makeup Remover Pads:
You will need a small amount of cotton or cotton blend yarn, an I/5.50mm hook, a tapestry needle for weaving in the ends, and a pair of scissors.
- Make a magic circle (there are some great tutorial on YouTube if you don’t know how to do this).
- Round 1: Chain 3 then DC12 in the circle. Pull the circle closed. Slip stitch into the CH3 to join.
- Round 2: CH3 then DC2 in each stitch. Slip stitch into the CH3 to join. Fasten off.
- Weave in ends and that’s it!
I hope my sister enjoys these and doesn’t lose them as quickly as she loses socks ;)
While y’all are sweating it up there in the Northern hemisphere, it’s freezing down here! But I love it, bring me rain any day! There’s nothing better than lying in bed, reading a book. I usually have a hot water bottle, but lately I’ve been burning my hands filling them up, so I think popping something like this heat pack in my bed before I get in is the way to go. Of course, you can also use these for aches, pains, etc. Just make sure you put a glass of water in the microwave with your heatpack when you heat it up so you don’t burn the rice.
