I just posted a few sets of adorable washcloths on Etsy. See the link below to check out our “Wild Washies” in super cute animal prints.
I thought I’d tell you a little bit about how we came up with this idea. Lucy used to have these super red, dry, crackly cheeks. I had thought maybe it was winter skin, but even as it warmed up this spring, I was constantly putting aquaphor (great product, by the way) on her poor little cheeks. Finally, I started thinking that it was being caused by my husband (and me sometimes) using a scratchy dishcloth to wash her face after a meal. We tried to keep them separate and even bought a different color to use for her face, but I think the material was still too rough for her tender skin.
So, one night I got the idea to sew some scraps of super soft minky and flannel together, and the washie was born.
Perhaps it’s a coincidence, but Lucy’s cheeks are now perfectly smooth and not red at all. I’ll never use anything else to wash her face again!
