  1. Where is the tutorial for the makeup pads? I don’t know where to use interfacing and your instructions mention use of a washcloth which isn’t on the materials needed list. I’m confused.

    1. Sorry for the confusion, there is no interfacing. Simply use a washcloth and fabric and sew circles or squares around them to secure in place. You can add batting in the middle if you wish.
