CROCHET PATTERN - Textured Soap Saver



If you've been following my blog for a while, or are a fan of my FB page, you've no doubt heard me singing the praises of these wonderful soap savers.  They're convenient, "green", money-saving, and comfortable.  They're great for ALL people... babies, grandparents, mommy... even my husband & his soldier buddies like using them!  It's a quick & functional project!  Enjoy!

  1. Thank you Danyel. I am going to go and make some now. I'm thinking about making some for Christmas gifts and putting them up until I need to wrap them

  4. I just recently found your blog through FB. I just made one of these today. I'm looking forward to trying it out on our next camping trip. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to try the legwarmers next for my 2-yr-old.

  6. I love these! The stitching is wide enough to let you get a good lather on the soap versus some of the others. Thanks so much!

  7. Thanks for the pattern! I just made one while watching Sex and the City 2 and it was easy and it turned out nice! I did end up with 25 stitches by the end somehow instead of the 22 but you can't tell much. Thanks again!

  8. There is a group SACKs that makes soap sacks for donation to shelters, etc. This is a very nice pattern for them. I did one and immediately loe it.. Would it be ok to link your pattern to them? https://www.facebook.com/SoapSACK/menu/
