Spa Set Free Pattern

Spa cloth, headband and scrubby — Patterns below

Not going to lie: I’m terrible at self care. It’s something I advise often, make sure my kids understand, and promise myself I’ll do, but I don’t often follow my own advice. But, hey, I often also say: Progress Not Perfection. Maybe I just need some time (and some cute accessories) to remind myself to take time off to really relax and take care.

I often insist my kids indulge in “Self Care Sunday”

In the spirit of hoping for progress in this endeavor, I’m sharing a favorite pattern bundle. I’ve given this set as gifts (and then subsequently have been asked to make them for other—so maker beware!).

There’s a spa cloth, headband and scrubby pattern included below and I really hope you like them!

It’s fair game to sell makes from these patterns, but please give credit if you are selling online. Please don’t publish this pattern as your own. That’s some seriously bad Karma…
