This one uses tule added to cotton thread: http://www.geocities.com/iluvdlls/scrubber.htm
This one uses recycled produce netting bags: http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2008/06/12/my-greenie-pot-scrubber/

If you're wondering what to do with all those massive amounts of plastic grocery bags you've accumulated, check this bag pattern out: http://mimoknits.typepad.com/knitting/2008/04/grocery-bag-pur.html
Or this one: http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2008/07/19/the-ultimate-grocery-bag/
In fact, this blog has several patterns for making bags and other things out of recycled plastic bags and cassette tape.
