Eco Tutorial: Make reusable makeup remover pads

e02b1-eponge1
  
This is such an easy project, and so useful !! Moreover, it’s a good way to reduce trash!!
To make your makeup remover pads, you may use terry cloth, soft and thick knit fabric, or quilted fabric.
  
  
I used leftovers of quilted cotton fabric. Take a glass, tin can or any other recipient of the desired diameter to trace the outline of your pads.
 
 
I chose to make rounds measuring 3 1/2″ (9 cm) in diameter. Cut the rounds, making sure you cut 2 rounds for each remover pad.
 
 
Now you only need to add a finishing seam all around… As this type of fabric doesn’t fray when washed, you have the choice of which kind of seam you want to do. You could finish it with a hand embroidery using blanket stitch, or sew a zigzag stitch with your sewing machine. I chose the latter option and did a zigzag stitch around the pads.
 
 
Don’t forget to sew 2 rounds together for each pad : with right sides together or wrong sides together (depending on your taste) to prevent the edges from rolling when washed.
 
  
And here is the finished project ! So quick to make, plus you will save money and respect the the environment.
 
Happy sewing!
