Rope Edging Crochet Border
When working textured crochet designs, I always add a border but often struggle when deciding which style to choose. I don't want the the border to take away from the texture, I want it to compliment it.
Do you ever get tired of buying facial scrubbies, kitchen scrubbies or bathroom scrubbies?
With the high chance of bacteria growth, we should throw them out more often than we want and replace them with fresh, clean new ones.
I have a quick and easy solution for you!
We all have scrap yarn left from other projects and the Bubble Scrubbies is a great way to use up that extra cotton in your stash.
A fun option for this project is to add a few to a small basket with some bath products to give as gifts to friends and family. You could even add a small bar of soap to the scrubbie prior to completing it so it's already to go!
You can also purchase the ad free pdf at the above link for a small fee OR continue below for the free instructions.
Pattern purchases here on my website will also be sent through Ravelry so you can save them to your library there.
Hey there! Thank you for joining my blog here at Crafting Friends Designs. Grab your hook, some yarn and get comfy as we crochet some fun, unique and beautiful projects together.
I'm Kate and crochet is my passion. I've been crocheting for 30+ years and as you can see from the selection of designs on my site, blankets are my obsession. I absolutely love creating something that will wrap my love around friends and family when they're in need of comfort.
Having 4 beautiful girls of my own has also inspired many infant, toddler and child size dresses. They are my biggest cheerleaders and have enjoyed wearing the things I've made them.
