Recycle Your Onion Bags
What better way to Recycle Your Onion Bags than to crochet them into a dish scrubber! Easy to make. Free form crochet, in other words…you’ll be creating the pattern as you crochet. I’ve made several of these and have to be honest with you, no two are alike! But the end results as I crochet them are that they are so much versatile than your everyday Brillo Pad. They don’t rust! They don’t scratch your finishes on your pans. To clean them, I stick them in the dishwasher with a load. I’ve made some for everyone. They can’t stop raving about how nice they are to use.
This is a great project for the beginner crocheter. It simply doesn’t matter how you Recycle Your Onion Bags as you crochet. Whether your attempt ends up round, square, flat or looking like the state of Texas, it’s usable
Next you’re going to cut the strips open to a single strand and tie them together. Don’t worry about ends, they’ll just become part of the scrubber.
This project used three smaller onion bags. If you want one a little bigger just keep adding additional strips until you get it as large as you want it.
This is what I did. I used a crochet hook size “J” I chained 3 and slip stitched it to the beginning chain. Then I began a spiral single crochet. I increased (2 single crochet in same stitch) about every other stitch to keep it flat. When I got to the diameter I wanted I started to decrease my spiral by skipping every other stitch.
