Free Pattern: Bath Scrubby Bag

My son loves the little water squirter bath toys and needed a bag to put them in to dry between baths. I thought I would try Red Heart Scrubby yarn so he can use it as a loofah during the bath too. It turned out just how I’d hoped!

Some have asked if the yarn is hard to work with. The stitches aren’t as easy to see as regular yarn, but that’s what is so nice about this bag! Most of the bag is made by working into those big openings so it is easy and works up quickly.
