Hello, Wendy here from The Crafter's Apprentice. I have finally finished the spa kits! Well, OK, I've got one washcloth to crochet as apparently I can't count, but they're pretty much done.
I never showed you the eye masks, so here they are:
After I'd finished sewing them, I put one on and Mr CA said "the nose cut out needs to be bigger". I gave him an "annoyed look" and ignored him. Maybe I've just got a big nose...
They have elastic at the back to account for a range of small - large heads. Not that I'm saying my family and friends have large heads, but you never know.
So, want to see the completed Spa kits?
Here they are, all full of goodies. Want to see what's in each one?
The slippers and eye mask are from this tutorial, the bag itself is from a pattern in Making magazine. The crochet washcloths are are different from various patterns in one of my books. There's also a couple of homemade soaps and bath bombs. The kit above also includes a bought pig-shaped shower gel. This kit is for my piggy-loving mum.
Would you be excited to find this under your Christmas tree?
Each kit is the same but different. Some have plastic bath toys in them - for the mother's of small children.
The slippers and eye masks are all made from the DS quilt line that was sold in the US in Joann's. Each has a different colour combination. I wish I'd had enough to make the bags the same, but it was not to be.
Most of the washcloths are made from cotton or acrylic yarn, I made them months and months ago, at the start of the year I think.
The soap and bath bombs are all from a couple of kits, but there are recipes galore on the internet if you want to try it. The soap is just melt-and-pour and was easy, the bath bombs were NOT easy!
Phew, it feels like a weight of my mind now that is done. I'm just having a break after finishing my last batch of candles and candle tarts and before making my gift tags. Not long to go now but most items are crossed off my list - either because they're done or because I've decided not to make them! Ah well, at least I'll have some ideas for next year!
