Hello! Welcome to Couch Surfer Crochet!!
Today I’m going to share three different crochet patterns with you to create a spa/bath gift set. You’ll find patterns for makeup remover pads, face cleansing pads, and a textured washcloth that is a great exfoliator. I like to make my friends and family handmade items for Christmas, and these sets were a big hit this year!!
The best part?!? These sets can be made for under $10 each! That makes it a perfect present for anyone in your life, be it close friends or your ‘Secret Santa at work’ when you have no idea what to buy!! I bought the basket and the three beauty items at The Dollar Tree and the yarn on sale at Walmart. This post isn’t sponsored, I just want y’all to know where to get the best deals!
These items are made with 100% cotton yarn. This makes them hand or machine washable. I prefer to use Lily Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn. I just picked the colors I thought worked best for the beauty items I found. I used a 5.5 mm hook.
As I’m sure you all know, and personally experienced, 2020 was a crazy year. As Covid-19 become more serious my life got busier with work. Last year I worked 6 days a week almost every week. We were terribly understaffed most of the time. That didn’t leave a lot of free time to crochet. And it definitely didn’t leave any time to create any new patterns! Thankfully things with my work situation are a little better now. I’ve got great co-workers and I’m able to take a little more time for myself.
Enough about the terrible year that was 2020…let’s get to those patterns!!

I made 5 different sets of these this year. They work up fast, so it also works great as a last minute gift. Thanks for checking out my pattern. I’ll be back soon with something new. You can sign up for my mailing this at the top right of the page if you don’t want to miss any posts!
