My mom started me with knitting and crocheting at the age of 5. As my knowledge of it outgrew my moms, I turned to my sister for help when I didn't understand something. I home schooled through 10th grade and graduated in 2009 with a public school. I can't live without Irish dancing and am currently studying to take the 4 day exam to be a certified teacher in 2014. When I'm not teaching dance or martial arts to young kids, my hands are always busy making something.
Besides knitting and crocheting, I have done many other crafty things as well, such as counted cross stitch, embroidery, bobbin lace making, latch hook, sewing, and bead work. Of everything I have tried, crocheting is my favorite. I love detailed work and have been told that I make things too perfect - as if that were possible.
In this new year of 2012 I am wanting to try creating patterns to sell. People always love my work and often ask for the pattern that I used, and I hate when I have to turn them down saying I created it myself or tweaked and combined other patterns to make it.
After trying many free pot scrubber patterns, I was never quite happy with any of them. So I created my own! This pattern includes a photo for every step along the way.
The 6" wide tulle will quickly and easily be cut in half to work with 3" wide strips. Two center circles are created and then joined together. To join the circles, you may work with either a 3" or 6" wide piece of tulle.
I had first tried making pot scrubbers out of the nylon netting that is bought by the yard at the fabric store. I found it extremely frustrating to try to cut into strips and to work with it. I gave up on it for awhile before trying the tulle that comes on rolls. IT IS SOOOO MUCH EASIER TO WORK WITH!!!
I hope you find my pattern easy to follow with all the pictures I included. I love it and think they make great, fast gifts. You can get at least 6 scrubbers out of a 6" x 25yard roll of tulle.
Center circle measures 2.75" across
