Recycled Onion bag - Crochet scrubber and pull string bag

All of us must be familiar with this onion bag and I'm sure there are lots of these bags lying around in your kitchen.

After using up the onions, my MIL had stored them, hoping to put them to use later. One day, she
asked me whether it is possible to make anything useful from these bags.

I needed a scrubber for cleaning my son's feeding bottle, so I took 2 bags, folded them to make a nice square and then did single crochet around the edges. And the scrubber was ready. It is nice and sturdy. I have been using it for more than 6 months and I haven't seen a single tear yet.

Then I decided to make the bag a little fancy.

I added 2 layers of the bags, so that it could hold more weight and did double crochet along one edge to form the base of the bag.

At the other end, I decided to make a pull string. So I did half double crochet along the entire bag. For the pull string, I made a long chain and attached pom-poms at the end.
