What the heck can I do with this.  I want to do something creative with this.  Any ideas will be much appreciated.  I don't want to use it for gardening.  There is a lot of it. Thanks! Smiley

the first thing that popped into my head was: send it to me!!!   Grin The second was that you could crochet a nice scrubby sponge out of it.......
You could also weave fabric through the holes, then use the new fabric to make a market bag?

Fix it to the ceiling and attach several strings of fairy lights using cable ties to make your very own virtual starfield.

Do you crochet or knit? This would make awesome kitchen scrubbies!

have kids? use it to make a ceiling swag and fill with stuffed animals

bare walls?  weave ribbon, fabric or plastic through it for a wall hanging

need outdoor privacy? weave plastic grocery bags and then hang from patio or wood frame - will hold up to the elements!

cut a piece, knot the bottom, put moss around edges, fill with potting soil and plant herbs in the sides and tie it up into a ball and hang outside.  a potless hanging plant!

"I'll fix dinner right after I _______ this!  You fill in the blank: sew, hammer, glue, tack, press, cut, etch, tie, paint, draw, color, iron, solder, grout, saw, cross stitch, bend, stain, wire, build, weave.

Wow, all of these ideas are fantastic.  I got this netting at the dollarstore for a dollar + tax years ago.  I never have used it and it has been lying around.  I don't need to keep anything out of my garden as it turns out and I don't want any animals or birds to get caught and injured so I thought to myself, I want to try and recycle it the best I can.

I am liking all of these ideas you have all given me.
I actually thought of the stuffed animal storage idea, but I don't have kids or that many stuffed animals though.  That is what this stuff reminded me of was the storage for stuffed animals.
I like the outdoor privacy idea. 
I love the potless hanging planter idea for sure because I love gardening.
I'm sure I will have plenty left over whatever I end up doing so kitchen scrubbies are a great use for scraps I would imagine.
I love the fairy light ceiling star field idea, I may just have to turn my craft room into a personal fantasy get away to relax in.
I love the market bag idea because they would be so light and small and easy to store, maybe if I even double the material up.  I will maybe have to try that. 

Again thanks so much for all of your help and ideas! Cheesy

I know the netting is larger than your typical tutu netting, but you could try to make something like this (for larger veg, or garden harvesting):

Thanks Rajawa for the link of the reusable produce bag tutorial.  I may try this, maybe if I used a couple of layers for smaller stuff.  I think that you are right that it may work for larger items.  I will probably try this idea.  Thanks.
