Do you find yourself using these little cotton rounds or cotton balls for everything like I do? I use them for taking my makeup off, using my astringent, taking off nail polish, cleaning out a cut, and the list goes on and on...
Up until this week, I had been using the disposable kind which seemed silly when I have mountains (and I mean mountains) of scrap pieces of fabric.
I cut out two pieces per round, and used a lid from a candle jar as my stencil - they are slightly bigger then the standard size, but I liked having them be a smidge bigger for more coverage. I used cotton mostly, with some fleece scraps I had left over - they do add a nice bit of absorbency when you use the fleecey side.
I zig zag stitched around them to make them as durable as possible and to eliminate fraying. I love the pop of the orange thread around the edges!
This batch took me only about 15 minutes from start to finish. I'm sure I'll make more too just so I can have a big full load before I wash them - plus I use maybe 3-4 every day!
I'm always looking for ways to cut down on waste and live closer to zero waste with every decision I make - do you have any suggestions or tips that you love?!
