I received an amazing present for my birthday last week. My good friends Shima + Ram + Mythilli gave me these beautiful hand crocheted makeup remover pads in an equally lovely handmade box (from an old magazine page). I love gifts like this, they just keep on giving long after the initial opening of the box.
Instead of using hundreds of cotton pads in a year, I will now be using, washing and re-using these lovely pads. You can just throw them in the wash with the towels.
Shima told me that she got the idea online, and so I did a bit of investigating and came upon the instructional pattern at the Crochet Spot in case you are interested in making some for yourself or as gifts.
