How to Make Reusable Makeup Wipes
Sew these reusable make-up wipes in no time!
This is a very easy little project. Making 1 make-up wipe takes no more than 5 minutes!
These wipes are a perfect scrap buster. All you need are two 4 by 4 inch fabric pieces. You will also cut down on your waste and cost because with these in your bathroom you will be using and buying less single-use wipes, right? And they also make a great little gift for a friend. If you make 5 wipes from your pretty scraps with a little matching drawstring bag to put them in, you will surely make someone very happy!
Don’t throw away your old towels! You can use them for this project. I have a lot of sweater fabric scraps that are very soft on the inside, so I used those. You can combine a soft layer (fleece, flannel, sweater, towel fabric) with a cotton layer or just use 2 soft layers, whatever you prefer.
How to make 1 make-up wipe:
- Cut two 4 by 4 inch squares.
- Sew all around with a ⅝ inch seam allowance, leave a 1 inch turning hole in one of the sides. Backstitch before and after that turning hole.
- Trim the corners.
- Turn right sides out. Tuck the seam of the turning hole in. Pin or clip down. I use a magic wand for pushing out corners.
- Topstitch all around at ¼ inch from the edge, closing the turning hole. If you don’t want to topstitch, you can close the turning hole with a ladder stitch by hand.
