April 22nd is Earth Day but we can do our part everyday to take care of the Earth. Keep scrolling to check out these eco-friendly patterns!
Crochet Tote Bag by MonoMey Studio (pictured above)
Skip the plastic bags and whip this up instead! This pattern is easy to customize to make the size that you need. Its beautifully contructed with a combination of chain and single crochet stitches. I included an organic cotton bag inside to hold the smaller odds and ends that might fall through the gaps.
Make-up Scrubbies by Stitched Up Craft
A super quick item to make to include in your skin care routine. These cute scrubbies are a great alternative to disposable cotton pads. Resusable and easy to clean! Did I mention that they're the perfect stash buster?
Merci Cloth by TL Yarn Crafts (photo courtesy of TL Yarn Crafts)
Another stash buster! The beautiful texture is created using the Tunisian crochet smock stitch. These towels would be great for cleaning counters or cleaning/drying your skin. They would also make wonderful gifts for a baby shower or a house warming.
French Market Bag by Two of Wands
Yes, another bag pattern but let's be honest... you can never have too many bags! The construction of this bag is awesome because it stretches to accommodate items of different sizes. Perfect for a trip to the store, farmers market or for storing produce in your kitchen.
le ventre basket by yarnTh3ory
This pattern utilizes the super simple waistcoat stitch and works up in one sitting. Crocheted baskets of various sizes and shapes can be used to store items (instead of plastic bins), cover planters or simply as a statement piece to decorate a shelf.
This is just a teeny tiny selection of eco-friendly patterns that you can make to help do your part in keeping Earth clean! We only have one Earth so treat her right! Happy Crafting!
