What is a Tawashi?!?!?

“A tawashi (たわし or 束子lit., a bundle) is a scrubbing brush for wet cleaning, of a style that is popular in Japan. Traditionally, tawashis were made of a hemp palm.


In Japan, sponges used for rubbing and washing are now treated as forms of tawashi.”

From Wikipedia

Your Tawashi Crochet Fiesta Ripple Dress can fit over a dish soap container

The only reason that I made the Crochet Fiesta Ripple Dress Potholder and/or Kitchen Towel Topper was because of Anne. She made crochet potholder dresses using my very first Crochet Dress Potholder YouTube video tutorial, and she loved them. All of the little crochet dress potholders that you find on my YouTube channel were due to her crochet requests for more through my YouTube Channel. She loved the crochet ripple design, and the Crochet Fiesta Ripple Dress Potholder Design that I made became my personal favorite. I loved all of the different colors, and I show how I matched the colors to the beautiful, and colorful, hanging Mexican Kitchen Tiles. You can also use a color wheel to help choose your colors.

Here is the free step-by-step YouTube Video Tutorial:

My recommendation would be to use 100% cotton when making your crochet potholder and/or Tawashi.  If you are just making a Tawashi then you can have fun and add yarns like this white polyester yarn. My personal favorite is this yarn that is shown in pink , but they come in different colors. I love white. It is the softest scrubby yarn that I have found to date. It would be a little difficult for beginners, so I don’t recommend using this yarn at first for a beginner.

My very first YouTube video tutorial was for an acrylic yarn crochet potholder dress. Someone brought me a cute little crochet dress and asked me if I could make a similar one for her. Around this time, I was reading My favorite magazine which had an article about YouTube, and my first YouTube video tutorial was made:

Part 2 of 2:

I had so much fun creating these adorably cute crochet potholder dresses! They are so easy and quick to make. They also make amazing gifts!

You don’t use them to grab hot items out of the oven. You use them to set hot pots on after bringing the hot item out of the oven. I began making these using inexpensive 100% acrylic yarn, but multiple people would come on my channel and leave comments about how people should use 100% cotton to make these. This is how I learned that acrylic yarn is made with petroleum products. If you set very hot items on acrylic yarn, you will get a “sheen” on your crochet product because it melts slightly. You can still use acrylic yarn to make these, but just don’t set hot items on them. You can use them as cute decorations at parties, and just set cooled items on them. For example, a large fruit bowl, or a large salad bowl etc.. or you can just set them in between your buffet items. You can also hang them as decoration.
