Sew Up Reusable Cotton Pads

Last week I shared a crochet pattern to make reusable cotton pads. And while I was making them I thought of all of you who can't crochet (yet 😉 ) And came up with another way to make them. If you can sew you can make these too!

How To Sew Reusable Cotton Pads from Fabric Scraps:

You'll need:

 1. COTTON FABRIC SCRAPS (I USED THE SLEEVES OF OLD T-SHIRTS) 2. EMBROIDERY / COTTON THREAD & NEEDLE 3. SHARP FABRIC SCISSORS 4. MEASURING TAPE / RULER 5. PEN (OPTIONAL)

I've made my cotton pads 8 x 8 cm. But you can make them as big as ya want

Step 1:

Cut you fabric double the size of your final square. In my case 16 x 16cm

Step 2:

Fold in half. And half again.

Step 3:

Use needle and thread to sew around the edge

It's a great project to practice hand sewing stitches. But you can use a machine too 😝
