Tawashi (meaning a traditional Japanese scrubbing brush to wash off dirt) + Swap (meaning the exchange of your crafty goodies for another’s crafty goodies) = GOOD TIMES! Creating Tawashies is as fun as it sounds. Recently Mary and I began swapping Tawashies with our Ravelry friends “bbhatsNstuff”. I looked around at the patterns available but decided to have some fun designing our own. When thinking of what types of fun shapes would lend themselves to really doing the job… they are in fact scrubbers after all I thought of something with a lot of texture. That’s when it came to me, I like to call it a Cactawashi. The deep ribs of the cactus, along with dimensional details of the flower and pot should make an excellent Tawashi. Created with Sugar ‘n Cream, it’s completely hollow so is squishes nicely, I may just have to make a few more.
This was a super quick project. Mary and I are busy cranking away at our other patterns scheduled for this month but if you’d like to have this pattern just comment and let us know, we’ll publish based on demand.
