Hello! I've been lurking around here for a while, but this is my first post  Smiley

I wanted to make a little pouch to hold my soap in, but the ones I saw for sale at the store looked too itchy for my sensitive skin. So I took a cheap kitchen wash cloth and cut it to size and added a draw string. Simple and quick project, its good for new soap bars or even just slivers of soap you want to use up.

Cut cloth (6" x 3.75")

Using the soap box to see if it fits between the layers of the kitchen towel. I folded the top edges over about a 1/2" to make a place for the drawstring. Since I used the corner of the towel, I only needed to sew one side + the drawstring.

After sewing up the side, I turned it inside out and its finished. The string comes from the handle of a Victoria's Secret bag and is about 18" long. Use a pencil or chopstick to push the string through.

Maybe I'll make another one with some prettier cloth or something with a nice design on it. I like the mesh part because it keeps the soap from getting squishy.

This reminds me of the soap savers we made for camp. Wouldn't they be cute for a guest bathroom...if I had a guest bathroom Roll Eyes Or to give as gifts for kids leaving for college?

If you use a longer string/cord, these would be really good for camping, like a reusable soap on a rope. Since it's just made of regular towel material, its pretty easy to throw it in the washing machine too.
