Spring is upon up! It’s finally starting to warm up here in Michigan (Depending on the hour you choose to go outside!) And I have a new outlook on life!
January we started all our New Years resolutions, by February we may have stuck to them, but by the time March rolls around, we may or may not have forgotten what we set out to do at the beginning of the year! The cold months may have you feeling worn out, unmotivated and uninspired. (I know, I feel it too!)
But the thought of Spring? Warm weather, pretty flowers, (rain), sunshine, (rain), bright colors (more rain) … You get the idea! It’s time to hear the birds singing as we get into the spring cleaning mood!
That’s why for today’s pattern I am revealing the crochet reusable Swiffer cleaning pad! (What a mouthful!)
I saw this idea while browsing through my Pinterest and wanted to come up with a pattern of my own!
I bought one of these Swiffers when I first moved into my apartment. I quickly ran out of the wet wipes they gave you. And I haven’t used it since. And I thought, what a waste! I bought this stupid thing and now I have to keep spending money to use it! Plus, the wipes dry out so fast, they are basically a one-use type thing. I could go spend more money on a Swiffer wet-jet but, why would I do that? I have crochet!
If you would like to support me and purchase the ad-free PDF downloadable version of the pattern, I have it available on my Etsy!
If not, that’s okay too! Just keep reading! 🙂
