What a great idea to use a bath loofah! The mesh from that is designed for water use and has a bit of stretch so it will shape to whatever you stitch it onto! That makes it a great option. The scape looks great so far! I can't wait to see how it looks filled in!

I did not know that so much mesh can come out of one little loofah .
Maybe I'll save the rest for some other project or something.
Hey DC when I got the plants out of the bags they smelled like they have been cooking, iI guess its just that Texas heat..HOT!!HOT!!..But that smell almost TKO'ed me
