How to make Nylon Pot Scrubbers

Wanna give it a try? Here’s what I used:
-1 Yard ofNylon Netting
-Self Healing Cutting Mat 36″ long
-Rotary Cutter
-Clear Cutting Ruler 18″ long
-Size N Crochet Hook
-Basic understanding of Crochet
 
Give these scrubbers a try and feel free to make, share, and sell them, just give me a link back if you’re selling online.
If you’re not up for making them yourself you can always order some from my Etsy shop at   https://www.etsy.com/shop/KariCreates
Just send me a convo or request for a custom order and I’ll set up a listing for you.

  1. I would like to try and make some of these, and noticed that the nylon netting is sold in different widths, 54″, 70″, 108″ etc. What width did you use? Thanks!

  2. These look like you may want to make up a few for quick gifts to give for special occasions.
