Shower poufs are great! They do an amazing job of sudsing, washing and exfoliating our bodies while in the shower (or bath).
But frankly, I am tired of shelling out even a buck or two for a net puff that falls apart after about 1 week, and I never ever really know how sanitary it is.
Well…enter in the Handmade, Crocheted Shower Puff!
Why Handmade and why Crocheted?
Handmade because YOU make it to last, YOU are in charge of quality control!
Crocheted because it’s FUN, EASY, CHEAP and frankly I believe a better puff!
Now on to the fun part…the making!
Handmade Crochet Shower Puff Tutorial
This Shower Puff is super simple to make…it makes up really quickly, although they do look time consuming. The large puff does seem to go on forever, but really works up quickly. Each puff will take about an hour
to make, start to finish. I used a pattern I found on Daisy Cottage Designs and she adapted her pattern from Ravelry. I did adapt and tweak this pattern here and there more to my liking! These little guys are great for gifts…birthdays, Christmas, just because!
Medium weight yarn (preferably Bamboo if you can find it for it’s antibacterial properties, but be warned, it can be pricey)
