It’s time to think about unique gift ideas, and homemade gifts are the best! You see, about a month ago, I asked my readers what they would love to see in the future on the Sitcom. And I had so many wonderful suggestions. This week, I am creating one of those suggestions! Vicki said:
The one thing I am trying to learn to crochet again to make IF I ever locate instructions is for a scrubby pad. My husband’s grandmother made them to give to all the women each year at Thanksgiving but I never thought to ask if she would write down how she made them exactly and now she’s gone sadly.
Well, you know I love a challenge.
I’m not sure if these are exactly how Vicki remembers them, but these are my version of crocheted pot scrubbies made from nylon netting.
They make fabulous handmade gifts! I plan on adding them to gift bags along with measuring spoons, cooking utensils, pot holders and a recipe book.
Want to know how to make them?
For this project I used:
1/2 yard of nylon netting per scrubby
Size G crochet hook
Begin by cutting the netting into 1″ strips. Since the netting was a bit difficult to work with, I used a ruler to judge the one inch mark and then cut it into strips that were approximately 1″ wide.
