The Start of Something Big...

I've been making my cotton scrubbies for a few years now; I started originally making them for myself and then decided to try selling them in my Etsy shop and at local markets. People usually pick them up and wonder what they are (I usually get asked if they are coasters!) but I'm always thrilled whenever anyone 'gets' what they are and buys some!

Recently a local soap-maker had been in touch with the idea of them selling them in their gift sets so I had a meeting with them and I'm so delighted that it was a big success.

They are a really amazing business Airmid  (click on the link to check out their website) and they've ordered two hundred scrubbies!!!

So to start me off I've ordered 18 balls of this gorgeous 'Pure Life' cotton from BlackSheepWools.

I love the quality of this cotton - sadly it's been discontinued (why??!!) so I was thrilled to find it still available online, though only in this one shade. I'm trying to get hold of another shade on Ebay so hopefully I won't be outbid.

Once the wool arrived I've only been making scrubbies - so far I've got sixty five made! It's a long way til I reach 200 but I'm happy with my progress.
