"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

These are so cute and such a great way to use up all those scraps of yarn we just can't part with! I don't know how to crochet, so I use a round loom to make my scrubbies! Now I'll be looking at all the wonderful colors of tulle at the craft store.

Oh! I learned something new here today. That you can buy a spool of tulle and carry It through along with the cotton yarn, and it makes a scrubby! The assorted bright colors shown in the pattern are made to brighten up your dreary kitchen. I am going to make about a dozen of these!

Have you made any yet? I learned something too that you can use the tulle to make these great scrubbies. It has been a long time since I have crochet but I may be willing to try this. Is it as easy as it looks. I have lots of tulle laying around to use. I love the bright colors also and I just painted my kitchen a granny apple green and these bright colors will make the kitchen pop. I hope they scrub well.

I don't know how to crochet, but these adorable dishcloths look like a perfect beginner pattern.

I have to admit... these are some pretty cool looking dishcloths. The idea of combining yarn and tulle sounds interesting, too.
