Handmade ~ by ~ Sheri" Artfire crochet shop, surprised me one day when she asked if I would review a couple of her items.
She sent to me some wonderfully well-crafted pair of facial scrubbies and a wash cloth. My first impression, when I opened the package, was the beautiful colors that were used in making the items. Then on closer inspection, I could see that Sheri is a VERY talented crocheter!
I couldn't wait to give this beauties a try and see if they would hold up when used. And to see if they would remain intact and keep their shape once they had been washed and dried.
I decided to use the wash cloth while doing my dishes. I figured...if it could hold up to THAT level of use, then using it in the shower was a no brainer. Much to my surprise it held up amazingly well!!! It didn't fall apart or get mishappened.
Next, I move on to the scrubbies. I don't wear make-up (except on the extreme occasion), so I gave one of them to a close friend to see what she thought of it and how well it helped to remove her make-up. I thought that the scrubbie would be rough on my face but it wasn't...it had a gentle exfoliating feel as I washed.
My friend was extremely impressed with her use of the scrubbie. It easily and, more importantly, gently removed all of her make-up. She said that her skin felt clean and refreshed.
So, we're 2 for 2 on the wash cloth and scrubbies. The final test was washing and drying. Sheri assured me that they could be machine washed and dried and would hold up perfectly. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical (not being a crocheter/knitter/etc...what do I know???) They looked to delicate to handle the abuses delivered by a washing machine and dryer.
Yet again, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was wrong...they held up and looked just as good as the day that I opened my package!
So, over-all, I would CONFIDENTLY and STRONGLY recommend that you purchase from Sheri. This is one talented crocheter!!! Her prices are reasonable and now's the time to start thinking about your Christmas purchases!
