How to Make a Net Shower Pouf

Save

Net shower scrubbies help you exfoliate and wash away the day’s dirty reminders, but they are sometimes rather expensive, especially if you replace them frequently to avoid mildew. It's not always convenient to run to the store for a new one. Keep a stash of tulle or netting in your craft closet, and a new pouf is never more than 10 minutes away. Keep a supply of colored poufs on hand for quick gifts and Easter basket or stocking stuffers.

Quick Gathered Pouf

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 yard of 72-inch-wide tulle or netting

  • Scissors

  • Needle

  • Nylon thread, light cord or 1/8-inch ribbon

Step 1

Cut the net into three 6-by-72-inch strips.

Step 2

Stack the strips on top of one another.

Step 3

Run a basting stitch down the center of the stack lengthwise. Pull the thread to bunch the netting into a ball. Wrap the thread around the center two or three times before tying it with a double knot.

Step 4

Fluff your new shower pouf.

  • Sewing machine

  • Needle

  • Nylon thread, light cord or 1/8-inch ribbon

Step 1

Cut a 12-by-36-inch strip of tulle or netting.

Step 2

Fold the strip in half and stitch the long open edge to make a 6-by-36-inch tube, using a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Turn the tube inside-out.

Crunch the tube into a ball and tie it to hold the shape. You can also gather the tube with a basting stitch.

Tip

  • Make pot scrubbers for the kitchen by substituting a coarser net and following the same steps.
