I felted some soap today.  After two bars, I got a brilliant idea to felt some soap to look like a hamburger.  Hee hee.  I love burger crafts.

I used some soap that I made that was too ugly to leave uncovered.

To felt soap:

Use wool roving and wrap it around your soap, making sure all sides are covered.  If there are any thin parts where your soap is showing through, add more roving.  Decorate with contrasting roving, if desired.

Drip hot water over the roving-wrapped soap.  Be gentle and continue to drip water (and squeeze gently if you want) until the wool is saturated.

The wool will begin to adhere to the soap, and shrink to fit around the soap.  It will be wrinkly.

Continue to wet soap with hot water, and rub the soap gently on all sides.  Dunk in hot water, and continue for about 5-10 minutes.

When the wool has lost most of its wrinkly-ness and is pretty snug to the soap, rinse it under cold water.  You will feel it begin to lose its slickness and the wool will contract a little bit.

Squeeze out excess water and suds, pat dry, and there you go.

forgive me if this is a silly question but why would you want to put wool on your soap? To exfoliate?    Huh  I've never heard of that before.  Looks cute, though!

Ehh, it's just for fun.  It does make the soap lather a LOT.

I'll admit, I think felted soaps are icky (I spend so much time trying to get hair OFF the soap, you know?!), but the burger soap is way cute.  Very creative - great job!

Any ideas on how to make felted soap hangable as to not have it mildewy?  Sorta like soap on a rope.
