DIY Bath Scrubbies: Mesh Bath Poufs

Bath scrubbies are great to use with shower gel instead of a washcloth. Here is an easy way to sew your own mesh bath poufs to save a lot of money!

Mesh bath poufs are body sponges made from mesh nylon netting. You can buy yards of this netting for just a few dollars.

Then the mesh is gathered together in a “pouf” form. And you use it to scrub your skin just like a washcloth.

Bath poufs are great to sew for many reasons:

  • You can make whatever color you love to match your bathroom decor!
  • Make these to add to a spa gift basket and give as gifts.
  • They are excellent products to sell at crafts fairs or online shops.

DIY Bath Scrubbies


  • 1/4 yard mesh tulle fabric (Tulle is very inexpensive in craft stores, however you can buy a roll of tulle online and the price is similar)
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread


Step 1

Cut out 2 long strips of tulle fabric, both strips should be of the same size.

Mine was 6 inches wide and 24 inches long.

Step 2

Place both strips together on top of each other with their ends matching.

Thread a needle with thread, making sure to knot it at the end.

Start in the middle of one of the wide ends. Draw the needle through the two strips of tulle.

Step 3

Do a running stitch along the middle of the strips along their length (no worries if it’s not exactly even, but try to keep in the middle the entire way).

Step 4

Once you have stitched to the other end, firmly hold the loose thread and then push down the stitched mesh tulle strip towards the other end.

You will be bunching up the tulle to create the body pouf effect.

Do not cut off the thread yet.

Step 5

Bring the ends of both sides of the pouf together, kind of like making a circle with the mesh strip.

Stitch the ends together with the needle and thread.

You do not have to stitch up the entire seam.

Make a few knots to secure the thread.

Step 6

If you want to make a hanger for the mesh sponge, then loop the needle and thread to make a large hanger. Then knot the end inside.

Be sure to do this step AFTER you have secured the mesh tulle into a body pouf shape.
