The 2nd installment in the Waterlily Collection, these Cotton Face Scrubbies are made with a nicely textured stitch perfect for deep cleansing of your face. They are eco-friendly and reusable. This pattern uses the same colors from my Waterlily Washcloth Pattern, in a light yellow, purple, and off-white.

They are a quick and easy make, using only about 10 yards of #4 cotton. I used Loops and Thread Cotton Colors in “Waterlily”. There are 6 different colors in this yarn. I separated out the lighter colors for this pattern.

Toss your cotton face scrubbies in a mesh laundry bag and toss in the washer to use again thereby saving the planet from unneeded waste. Make a bunch and pair them with my Cotton Washcloth and a nice bar of soap or face wash to give a thoughtful spa gift set.
