Scrubbies made from Recycled Nylon Food Bags

I crocheted a couple scrubbies for the kitchen the other day.

They are scratchy for those tough stains and can be used over and over again.

So guess what I made this handy dandy scrubbie out of??

The netted bag off of the spiral ham we cooked.

I also made some out of the onion bags,
orange bags and lemon bags.

All you have to do is make sure you snip off the TOP of the bag
 and NOT rip it open in the middle. 

Then you lay the bag flat

fold it over a couple of times
 making sure to keep your top edges even 

and then cut the bag into approx. 1" strips.

Loop the strips together to make a big string,
being VERY careful not to pull to hard because the netting will rip
roll it into a ball
and then start crocheting.

I use an I hook and
I used the same stitch I used on my regular scrubbies
only I made this scrubbie smaller. 
I only did two rows
because I don't have a ton of the netting and because this way I can just grab the scrubbie with my fingertips and get right on that stuborn stuck on stuff.
