My mom, who knows me so well, gave me a gift card to a craft store for Christmas. In my excitement, I spent about half of it on crochet hooks and yarn! Crochet is something I really enjoy. It’s so versatile! I can make a blanket, a dish scrubbie, clothing, stuffed animals, etc. It’s also pretty much instant gratification. Most things work up fairly fast and I can see it taking shape.
But, I digress. After buying the hooks and yarn, I had to make something with them. I already knew I wanted to make some scrubbies to brush up on my novice skills, but I wanted to expand as well. I found a great pattern for Soap Savers over at LA Is My Beat. They are super cute, easy to make, and the pattern could be modified to fit any size bar of soap!
I have a slight obsession with variegated yarns. But, they do work great for projects like this. I didn’t have a spare bar of soap to measure against as I crocheted, so I just followed the pattern a well as I could.
This is shown with a couple altoid tins inside. It was the best I could come up with at the time without putting a bar of used soap inside. Once I could get to the store and pick up bars of soap, I found that this was a little big for the bar od Dial soap I bought. It will be easy enough to modify the pattern though.
I love the soap savers. I think it will save me from fighting with those little slivers of soap, plus I love the little loop that keeps the bag closed. It will work wonderfully for hanging to dry – something I need to work into the spiral scrubbies.
What do you think? It is something you would try to make? Is it something you would use? Would you buy them if I sold them?
