Face Scrubbie Pattern Updated



I am in the process of offering my free patterns as PDF downloads. In the near future I will be sharing the binder I use to keep my patterns, projects, and ideas organized. There will be free printables available for anyone who would like to put together a project binder. I thought this would be a good time to offer my patterns as downloads so they can be printed off and saved for later.


As always, you are welcome to sell the items you make from my patterns as long as credit is given where the pattern is available.

Baby Topsiders


Baby boat shoes!! I just finished these up. Once you get the hang of the straps they are pretty easy to make and are pretty quick. The original pattern is from the Whistle & Ivy website and is available here. What's nice is that she has a video tutorial available for the whole pattern and a separate one for the sole and straps. 

If you are interested in a finished pair they are listed in my Etsy shop Twisted Fibers Designs

Crochet Baby Converse


I'm usually more of a knitter but recently a family member who had a baby requested I make a pair of these for her. It was a fun project to see come together. The pattern is available as a free download from Loopysue Designs on Ravelry and can be found here. The pattern is really well written with tons of photos to help you understand the instructions.
     If you don't crochet and would like a pair of these they are available in my Etsy shop: Baby Converse Booties






Face Scrubbie Pattern





UPDATE: I'm hoping that I got all the broken links fixed for everyone who was trying to find this pattern :)
This is a really simple idea for a gift or a great item to have around the house. These can be used as a nice reusable face scrubbie or even a coaster.
