Peppermint Scrubbies

Posted on July 29, 2015

I love doing some Christmas in July projects. Here are some quick and cute peppermint scrubbies you can crochet that make wonderful little Christmas gift ideas. Of course I had to make some using recycled plastic bags.

Here is a crocheted scrubbie with a green plarn center made from a thin cut plastic bag. I used one green plastic bag cut 1/4 inch wide to make the center and used cotton to finish it. Just follow the pattern directions but use the thin cut plarn for the center portion of the pot scrubber.

Here is one more group of peppermint scrubbies I crocheted using different bits of cotton scrap yarn.

This cute little peppermint scrubbie pattern was created by Claudia from over at Delights Gems. You can download the free pattern here.

Remember Christmas will be here before we know it. July is always a great time to get started on those gift-giving projects.

    These are really cute. Love the colours and what a great way to use up scraps instead of throwing them in the bin.

    I have just come across your blog and I must say I have never tried crocheting with plastic bags! It’s such a neat idea! I’m currently doing a massive family overhaul and changing our lives so we can be more green and environmental contentious and this is such n awesome idea! There are so many things I could make with the bags that end up here even though they really shouldn’t!
