Make a new one of course!   Grin

I found this cute pattern here => http://members.aol.com/lffunt/bath.htm

and I made a new puff using Lily's Sugar and Cream cotton yarn. It's super soft and I hope it works out ok.. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet!  

It took me a few hours to crochet and it was a little tough after it got all ruffly for me, but it was a quick and easy project. Cheesy

I might make a few for bath gift baskets for christmas prezzies.  heeheee


and of course.. pics!


zee puff


it fits perfectly in my hand!

I really like this idea, and yours turned out great!  Cheesy
I do wonder if it will dry out quickly enough to not grow anything icky in it. Maybe if it gets squeezed out after use? I really want to make one, but I'm a little nervous about using it. Anybody have any experience with handmade bath puffs?

if it is made of cotton it should work out fine, as dishclothes are made out of cotton yarn and they work out fine.

no icky stuff grows as long as it is rinsed and squeezed.

Thanks for all the comments everyone! Cheesy

I tried it out this morning.. and well, apparently cotton is not the BEST yarn to use.. lol  it worked fine, it was just kinda heavy.. and lumpy.. lol

I'm thinking maybe if I used the same pattern and tried to make on in microspun or something similar, it might work better....

and .. since it's so dense, the cotton doesn't dry all that quickly.. it's been 12 hours and it's still damp.. Sad

It looks great! (I currently have a headband on made from the same yarn Smiley  ).  I read somewhere that it's best to pick a quick drying fiber, such as nylon for something like this, especially since it's not as flat as a dishcloth.

On the other hand, you could make 7 of them, and put them through the washing machine/dryer instead.  Smiley

People make scrubbies out of nylon like the kind you wrap jordan almonds in for weddings and whatnot... it's cheap at walmart in the fabric area - that would be best...especially since it is probably closest to bath pouff material....
