I wanted to make some felted soaps as Christmas gifts and needed some mesh for the process. A colleague – Robert from Kingston Soap Co. said he had used mesh from a scrubby to hold the roving together around the soap so I found one to cut up.
It gave me a long tube of mesh of which I needed about six inches….there must be something useful to do with the rest…of course! Fruit/veg shopping bags. I had bought some in an Eco shop in our old neighbourhood in Toronto years ago and I have but one left…I cut lengths of this mesh and tied a knot in one end of each length of about 18″. Now I have washable, reusable bags to take with me when I shop for fruits & vegetables! Yeah.
