HOW TO MAKE A CLEANSING SET

MATERIALS

  • 50cm (19¾) of linen (Fabric 1)

  • 50cm (19¾) of cotton flannel (Fabric 2)

  • Selvedge offcuts

  • 20cm (7 7 /8) cotton tape (optional)

Take an easy step towards a zerowaste beauty routine, or give the gift of conscious cleansing to a friend with this simple set. Including a face cloth, make-up remover pads and a bath mitt, this reusable collection is another great way you can make a difference to the planet

Plus, the quick-sew pads are ideal for using up any scraps of fabric you've got in your stash.

Make-up remover pads

01 Using a stencil (like a large lid), draw and cut out 10 circles on both Fabric 1 and 2.

02 Hold one Fabric 1 round and one Fabric 2 round together and sew around the edge using zigzag stitch. Trim the fabric as close to the stitches as you possibly can, being careful not to cut the stitching. Repeat to make 10 make-up remover pads in total.

VIBRANT COLOUR AND BOLD PATTERN FILL GERI SAMMUT-ALESSI'S BEAUTIFUL HOME

Geri Sammut-Alessi describes her Milton Keynes home as a 'land of magnolia' when she and husband Andrew first bought it nine years ago. The five-bedroom, new-build house in Milton Keynes was just two years old, and "very uninspiring," Geri says. "It was such a challenge to decorate but we are incredibly proud of the personality and character we've added."
