VIDEO How to Sew Reusable Makeup Remover Squares

In today’s video, we’re sharing how to make reusable makeup remover squares. These little squares are a replacement for disposable cotton balls or pads and are an easy way to reduce waste and save money. Plus, if you have some cotton flannel in your scrap bag, they're basically free to make.⁠⁠ AND! This tutorial has a bonus lesson because it also shows you how to serge around a corner for a super clean finish. This technique will be helpful for all sorts of projects so it’s definitely worth it to watch the video.

For supplies, you’ll only need some scraps of cotton flannel, a serger/overlocker and thread. They’re super easy to make and so useful. I did some research on makeup remover that is packaged without plastic and the only solution I found was coconut oil. I’m currently using up a bottle of micellar water but I’m planning to switch over to coconut oil when it’s empty.

I hope that you found this video helpful. If you’re not already, make sure to follow my channel on YouTube to stay up to date on all my videos and let me know in the comments if there are any topics you're interested in seeing a tutorial about. Happy sewing!
