So for todays DIY we’ve got something that might seem a little strange, but I made one and I like it, so I thought I would just throw it out there in case anyone else is interested in it.
Get out your wool (it should be a natural fiber, only)
First you just knit yourself a long rectangle, about 1/2 wider than your bar of soap. I put a little cable in mine, just for fun.
Then measure it up to your soap, make sure it can wrap all the way around it.
Then simply sew it into a pocket, drop the soap in, and sew up that open end.
And since it’s made out of the wool, it will slightly felt in the shower, and it makes good suds!
Rachel J. made something like this in the shape of an owl a while back: http://www.feminagirls.com/2009/03/11/owlie-soap-sack/
So when the soap’s gone, do you throw it away, or just rip your seam down the side and reuse it?
Hannah, I don’t know if it’ll be reusable, I guess I will just have to see how much it felts, if it doesn’t felt a lot I can use it again, if it does felt too much then I’d probably just knit another one, it’s a pretty quick project!
and that owl is way cuter than mine. 🙂
