Make your own Back Scrubber

Colorful terry cloth can be used to make many bath items. A terry cloth back scrubber is a cinch to make and you will enjoy it for years to come. Make one to keep and one to give.

Materials for two back scrubbers:

1 yard terry cloth
thread
1 yard of sturdy, washable cotton cord (optional)

Cut two pieces of terry cloth 23 inches long and seven inches wide. Hem each piece all the way around with a ¼ inch hem, mitering the corners. (Note: If you are tall you may want to make the back scrubber slightly longer than 23 inches.)

Optional cord handles:

Cut four, 7 inch long lengths of cord. Attach a piece to the ends of each terry cloth back scrubber, forming a handle at each end.

Optional terry cloth handles:

Cut four 7 by 3 inch terry cloth strips. Fold down a ¼ inch all around each strip and press. Now fold each strip in half lengthwise. Sew each strip all the way around, close to the edge.

Next attach the ends of a strip to the end of a terry cloth rectangle, forming a loop handle. Attach the other strips the same way.
