4 DIY Home Projects with Natural Raw Cotton
Natural cotton is often overlooked in the natural fiber world. Cotton has a natural, breathable texture that can be used for all sorts of DIY crafts or home projects. Check out some of these 4 ways to use natural raw cotton in your home!
Use to fill a crocheted, knitted, or sewn stuffed animal, or doll.When you put in the hard work of making a stuffed animal or doll, don't settle for normal store-bought filler that is oftentimes packed with synthetic fibers. Our cotton stuffing is all natural and chemical-free, meaning your craft will be even better for children and loved ones.
Make natural cotton balls for cleaning or household projects!Don't just use synthetic cotton swabs to clean your ears and apply makeup, try using natural raw cotton ! Cotton fibers are soft and gentle enough on the skin for use in sensitive areas such as around noses and eyes, but sturdy enough to hold up against natural cleaners and makeup products. Our cotton comes already ginned, so it has no seeds! Simply break apart the amount you need, roll in your hands, and use directly!
Use in your garden as mulch or natural weed control!Cotton has natural pest resistance which makes it the perfect natural mulch to use in your garden. Our cotton is ginned, so you can break apart and spread out for a thin layer of natural protection against weeds or pests without any chemicals involved. This method will not only make sure that pesticides are not seeping into your natural landscape, but it will help insulate and fertilize the soil underneath.
Upcycle an old T-Shirt into a throw pillow!Don't just throw out those old T-shirts. You can reuse them to make a fun and soft throw pillow for a couch, bed, or chair! All you need is the shirt, our cotton stuffing, a fabric to use as backing to prevent stretch over time, and matching thread for your sewing machine. Simply cut out the sections of the shirt you wish to use for the front and back of the pillow (like a certain pattern or artwork you want featured on the pillow), measure and align your backing of the same sizes (this prevents natural stretch from cotton T-Shirts), and sew as you would any other pillow project. Be sure to leave one side open to be able to stuff the natural cotton inside before finishing!
