I tell you those japanese scrubby books are so cute, and the things you can make out of them even cuter. Here are the lastest ones that I made up! these are from the scrubby book #7, I believe


I used the peaches and cream 100% cotton yarn that you can get for around $1.30 a ball, each one of these took less them 1/2 of a ball, and only took a few hours to make up.   The kitty is actually like a puppet. Too cute for sure!

I want those Scrubbie books!  Unfortunately I can't find them at YesAsia.  I'm too cheap to buy at ebay and Amazon Japan scares me... (yes I know about babelfish...)

So they are just made out of cotton?  I would have thought some kind of nylon net or something. Are they stuffed?

These are just flat, with no stuffing. I think the original book calls for some special type of yarn, but since I can't read japanese I am only guessing.  I found some of the scrubby books on Etsy.com and they are cheaper then what you find on Ebay.

How does the cotton work when you use them?  I'm wondering if you could use nylon cord, or maybe strips of nylon tulle., or that netting stuff they use to make shower body scrubbers.

are they crocheted in a round like an amigurumi, or are they two flat pieces sewn together?  I would love to make some.

the animal ones are crocheted like normal amigurumi, in the round. The fruit slices were also crocheted in a circle like size, then folded and crocheted around the edging. 


the cotton yarn that I use is the same cotton yarn that I make dishclothes out of. they work great for washing dishes and for washing your body. I haven't used any of these yet to wash stuff with, for some reason I don't think I could one with a face on my body I may be too embarrassed!   I believe you can use anytype of yarn or even the tulle it may be neat to see what they look like using some of those items.
