I had a HUGE pouf from Wal Mart, but unfortunately, I can't fix it any longer. It has seen much better days. The problem is, that they don't sell the really big ones anymore. So, I decided to make one. I used about 2 yards of tulle. Sorry there is paper in the first few pics. I didn't really think my idea would work at first.

Take your sheet of tulle.


Fold it in half widthwise.


Fold the tulle in 3rds lengthwise.


Cut on all the lengthwise folds. you should have 6 long strips that are folded in the middle.


Take one strip and fold it into 3rds lengthwise. Stitch all the way to the end using a shain stitch to keep it secure.


It should look like this.


Use a running stitch to gather it really tight.


Once you have done that to all 6 strips, stack them so that one seam is vertical and the next is horizontal. Keep stacking them like that until you are done. String them all together and tie very tight.


Add a hangy string, and tie the knot really tight. Wash up after all that hard work!


My hangy string is just some crotched yarn.  Cheesy

oh, thanks for the tute!

i've actually been wondering how to make these as of late, but im glad i dont have to spen the time figuring it out.   i would personally use some larger mesh though, as it would be more 'scrubby', if you know what i mean, and more similar to the ones i have at home that i always use.

They didn't have any really big mesh. This one is a lot more exfoliating than my last one.

I found some one time at Hobby Lobby that was kinda soft and drapey... did you use that kind or the stiff kind? Because all I have is the stiff kind. Maybe it'll work... thanks for the tute! I'll have to make my mom one too... mother's day, ya know. haha. (A scrubby and a crocheted bead necklace. What a combo.)

the kind I bought was soft, but the fine mesh makes it a little stiffer. I actually like it a lot because I feel cleaner than with the huge mesh and my husband says my skin looks and feels softer.

I would have never thought of that.  What a neat idea.  And thanks for the tute; I may be using it. Smiley

It matches my bathroom perfectly. What a great way to personalize your space, huh?

That's really neat.  Tulle never crossed my mind.  Whenever I thought of making these, the only thing I could think of using was the mesh bags that oranges come in...then I stopped thinking about it, because my attention span...not so good.   Good job.
