Crochet Pouch Facial Scrubby, Beginner Friendly

Hello everyone, I hope you’re enjoying the summer and trying not to melt 🙂 Someone left a comment here about my crochet netted pouch and wanting to try to make something similar, but smaller, for a crochet pouch facial scrubby type design.

I thought it would be a really interesting idea and rather than try to explain it though a comment reply, I thought it would be a great project to share with the community. So here we go, a crochet pouch facial scrubby thingy. Naming it was tough, but the project will be really easy 😂

It’s another great project for your leftover yarn. I used this Lion Brand Comfy Cotton blend remnants that I happened to have. I think cotton is a good choice for this one, but any natural fiber will work. I like the feel and function of natural but you can use anything you prefer.

The crochet pouch has a drawstring that keeps your facial bar secure and in place so you don’t have to chase it all over the bathroom while you’re washing.

If you’re looking for more bathroom and home accessories, you might like my bath rug or these cute little faux flower pots and such.

Hope you all enjoy, I really love this idea. Thanks to Helen for the comment that inspired this project, hope this answers your question. Happy crocheting everybody!

Crochet Pouch Pattern

Round 5 – 11 rep Round 4

The end of round 11, cut the yarn and weave all the ends.


For the drawstring, you can make it as long as you like, just make more ch when you start. Make sure both pieces are the same length. I made 60 ch then cut the yarn.

Thread the drawstring into the bag at the side in round 9. Weave the drawstring through each loop all the way around the bag. We will repeat the same with the second drawstring starting from the opposite side so there are drawstrings placed evenly on both sides of the bag. Make sure that the drawstrings are at the sides of the bag, then tie a knot in the ends. 

Congratulations! Nice work. I’d love to see everyone’s work. If you want to share with me, just tag me on IG or FB. Happy crocheting😊
