I love these! I just love, love, love, love them. I don’t know why, but I think it’s because of the bullions… and the triangle. It’s just too cute… that’s all.
And you know what else I love about it? This design was born when I designed the 12″ A Fan of Bullions Afghan Square. This came up as I was playing around, but it didn’t work out the way I wanted to in an afghan square. I guess I could have done the Triangle in a Circle in a Square type of deal, but my inspirations took me in a different direction. And I’m glad I came up with this.
Anyway, the finished scrubby measures 3″ across. It’s great for the face and feet, but could also work for vegetables and other things. Or, use it as a cute doll rug.
