small scale IKEA hack

by Nova on February 23, 2012

little patchyworky face-washers gifted to a special little boy to make bath time that little bit more fun :)

 

Total IKEA hack – they very kindly add a cute & colourful cotton tag to their face-washers that just begs to be paired with some scrappy & patchy improv love –  though any old (well new of course!) face washer will do. I pre-washed them before I stitched the patches on just in case they had any plans to shrink.

A sweet little quick fix gift, paired  with some hand made soap perhaps?

These are totally adorable! I’ve bought the same towels from Ikea, and this is such a great way to jazz them up.
