Regular exfoliating is a SUPER important part of preventing and treating body acne and inflamed pores. You want to rid your skin’s surface of those dead skin cells to help prevent bacteria, sweat, and dirt from getting stuck underneath the skin’s surface.
Even for those with normal skin type, exfoliating every day can lead to excessive dryness, irritation, redness and even broken blood vessels. It’s a good idea to exfoliate once or twice a week to brush away dead cells and the dull outer layer of skin.
SO…..Don’t overuse this little gem!

Yarn: Red Heart Scrubby Yarn
This guy took me 8 hours over 5 days to make. I had to tweak the pattern a bit. I added some rounds of sc for the tail, to enlongate it for stability.
Hindsight I would center the eyes closer to the nose. His eyes are kind of wonky and spread too far apart for my taste.
**Tips for making the EYES**: I used a dry erase marker to outline a close-up screenshot of the eyes on my phone, a computer screen also works. I measured the muzzle and then used a ruler to get the eyes as large as I wanted and I traced it on the screen then onto a paper then onto the felt. I did the same thing for the green part of his eyes. I used black and white yarn to embroider the green part of the eye.
