Eco-friendly Reusable Make-up Pads

Introduction: Eco-friendly Reusable Make-up Pads

I try my best to be green, so I made these reusable make-up pads to use instead of cotton cosmetic pads.
I used an upcycled mixed yarn (20% denim, 80% cotton) from "Wool and The Gang". I made a round form, so it looks like a pad and it is easy and quick to make.


  • scissors
  • crochet needle
  • yarn

Step 1: Step 1.: First Loop

Step 2: Step 2.: First Loop in the Loop

Step 3:

Step 4: Step 4.-5.: Main Movements

Step 5: Step 5.

Step 6:

After doing the main movements 3-4 times, use the end of the thread to pull together the knots.

Step 7: Step 7.: Repeat

After gathering together the knots, use the same technique but instead of going under 1, put your crochet needle under the upper row, which consists of 2 threads.

Do the same movement again and again around, until you reach the size you needed.

Step 8:

Step 9:

Step 10:

Step 11:

Step 12: End

After you gained the size you wanted, just finish the crochet with a knot.

Do not hesitate to ask me anything :)

    Would the crotchet makeup pads get stained.

    If you wash them with warm water after use and wash them is washing machine they should not, but obviously depends on how heavy your makeup is. My friend adds some vanish to them when washing and she said that it removes mascara marks from it.

    Would you have to wash the makeup pads after you use it ?

    Will it get stained


    Reply 2 years ago

    Yes, I do wash them in washing machine (I made enough pads for 2 weeks use, so until those are drying, I have enough).
    I put them in a small wash bag on a 30-40 degree normal wash with dark clothes, depending how you use them. I do not use heavy makeup so mine never got stained, but a friend of mine who made some as well, she said that she adds some vanish powder to them and it removes the mascara staines.
