So after the 2 weeks break I continue my #crochetforfuture sequence. Today I want to talk about reusable cosmetic pads. I have seen the idea a couple of weeks ago and I totally love it! I started to crochet my cosmetic pads right away and it took just minutes to produce one!t So after just a half an hour you might have 4-5 pads and you don’t have to buy them at all! Isn’t it great?Especially now, in the quarantine times (actually, good for the environment times, when big companies stopped producing cars and people started to enjoy wild nature and their own houses).
Actually, the are quite some reusables we can crochet instead of buying one-time-use items like dish cloths, sponges 🧽, shopping bags. Other ideas? I would love to hear them!!!
If you crochet something to make our environment better or as an act of kindness, please don’t forget to use the hashtag #crochetforfuture. Together we will make the world better!
