Craftly – Aqua Spa Set

I’ve been delving into cotton crocheting finally. That’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. We happened upon a great price on Bernat variegated super packs and I picked a cool aqua.

I was trying out a corner-to-corner dish cloth pattern by Ananda Judkins when I thought it might make a pretty luxurious towel. It’s think and absorbent. It ought to make a great towel. So I did. I modified the original pattern from a square to a rectangle and ended up with a really think yummy towel. It took A LOT of yarn. But it was so worth it.

It wasn’t until I was almost done that C. suggested it would make a great gift for his sister. But who gives just a towel? And I had a smidgen left over from the 3(!) extra large skeins of cotton. Enough I thought for maybe a wash cloth and something more. As it turned out I had enough for a bath poof. I found the pattern for this one at Daisy Cottage Designs, though you can find tons of free patterns for poofs online.

It still didn’t seem like an entire gift yet. So I went digging and came up with:

A bath scrub! I went with this cute pattern from Moogly but I added a strap across on the back instead and made it a little bigger and more rectangular.

Which led me to a set of these uber cool face scrubbies from Dabbles & Babbles:

And then to these re-usable cotton pads for makeup removal which I just adore!

All in all I think it made for a great collection.
