Throughout the year I find myself needing a neat gift for random reasons. Scrubbies of any kind are great to have on hand for many occasions. SO, as part of my quest to work on gifts throughout the year I will be sharing a different scrubbie pattern each week throughout 2015.
For week 3, I designed a scrubbie to hold nylon net scrubbers. There are lots of patterns that crochet around the net. They are wonderful, but I usually buy the dollar store packs of scrubbers and they fall apart quickly. I wanted something I could keep using and just replace the nylon scrubber.
