I've seen partial spools of tulle in the thrift shop that were left over from parties, bridal showers, etc. but didn't know what they could be used for. Now I do! This is a great way to upcycle those remnants into something really useful. I would probably use a little wider strips to make a thicker sponge so it would last longer.

I would have never thought of making a sponge at home if I hadn't come across this pattern! It is a great idea to make an environmentally friendly sponge out of tulle mesh fabric cut into strips and knit together in garter stitch. It is interesting how a 2-inch strip of tulle gives a denser sponge than a thinner strip. Great tutorial video on how to make this!

These useful little scrubbers are knit with tulle cut into 1 - 2" strips instead of yarn. What a clever idea. You can by tulle in 3" wide rolls 25 yards long or in other widths too at hobby and fabric stores and also at stores that sell party supplies. Watch for sales to buy the tulle cheaply or use the coupons found on most every fabric store site. The patter is simply a few rows of garter stitch but I imagine you could crochet them too.

I can't seem to locate this pattern from the link, for the Easy Knit Sponge. Can you help me. I've been to Ravelry and checked all of the pages from this person but couldn't find the sponge pattern.

Hi there, if you click the pink button that reads "Click here for knitting pattern," you will be directed to the designer's Ravelry site. In order to access the free pattern from this page, click on the link where it says, "This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download." Hope this helps! - Kathryn from AllFreeKnitting

They are great my daughter even uses them to clean her horses bit!
