If you read my posts here on planning a DIY wedding, you’ll know that I was married in September (The wedding was perfect!). At first, I was worried about what I would do with all of my decorations once the big day was over, but now that I’m not spending all of my time planning a wedding, I’m using my free time to explore new and interesting ways to use up all of my leftover wedding materials.
For instance, I recently ran across a free pattern for crocheted dish scrubbers made of tulle! The pattern is written by Nadine Borovicka, and you can download it through Ravelry here. I will personally attest to the fact that this pattern is super fun, well written, and simple enough for beginners to tackle without any fuss.
So far, I’ve made about 20 tulle dish scrubbers with this pattern, and I plan on giving them away as wedding gifts and Christmas presents in the coming months as two-packs. To package my gifts, I find it easiest to thread a piece of ribbon through the center hole of both dish scrubbers, securing them together with a knot. I like to tie on my personalized tag first (I used tags in the style French Market) and then run my scissors along the ribbon to make it curl for a cute presentation. I can’t wait to give these to my friends and family this year!
