To look at their clearance boxes and found 2 unusual yarns .  Well unusual for me.

  They are cotton cloths in strips called Sugar and Cream Scrubby on clearance sale. Decided to try and crochet them into my first ever dishcloths.  Very unusual to crochet with . I made 1 and finished  it.

I've used sugar and cream for dishcloths but never heard of scrubby.  Wonder if it's coarser?   ..coarser? well , it is thin strips of cotton cloth. will try one out for myself.

Have you seen the things crocheted out of plastic bag strips?  I tried that but it got too overwhelming so it's not finished.

   yes saw the crocheted plastic bag strips. No wonder it was overwhelming. Takes time to cut them into strips , sort them and then crochet. too much work.

Yes I have seen things made out of the plastic bag strips for sale on etsy. Never tried it tho.

I have tried crocheting strips of fabric didn't really like how it was looking so didn't finish the project. Maybe I cut my strips to wide???

I even bought a larger crochet needle to use on the fabric strips. might try it again someday. I have lots of drop offs of fabric that I could use. I saw someone had crocheted a purse out of strips of cloth and had it for sale on etsy..Was not cheap..

I bet your strips were too wide.  I did that too with the plastic.  I used a large crochet hook for the plastic strips.  The ends were driving me crazy, guess I should have stuck with one color, I was using blue (walmart bags) and yellow (dollar general).  Cutting the strips took much longer than the actual crocheting.

Here's what I was trying to make.  http://www.marloscrochetcorner.com/Plastic%20Bag%20tote.html

I think I would like fabric strip items better than the plastic.  Will check out the etsy pictures.

Nice, Aileen!  Are the strips wider than regular yarn?   ...no not wide

I really want to see a pic of one of your dishcloths! will try again on this.

Know what?  Don't know if you know this.  At our Michael's, they have rewards cards now.  For each $100 you spend, you get $5.

On your first purchase, you get 20 per cent off -    nice but I do not spend that much in one buy.

Oh, what I meant was that your first purchase, once you register your card, how ever much you spend, a lot or a little, you get 20% off.    Usually they mention the card but no one has. See my projects?
