I saw this and adore the idea. It's also a great, quick and easy gift. It's just soap felted with needle felt (or wool roving I think is what it's called) the Cresent shaped ones were a test, the other was for my sister. I'm pretty excited about doing more of these, my hands have never felt softer. Next i'm going to make my own soap into different shapes, wish me luck.

What a great way to use up your scraps of wool!  And completely use up the bar of soap, too! 

Very clever.   Wink

Very nice! What kind of soap did you use? I tried this once but the soap I used had a fragrance I didn't care for, so I didn't end up using it much Sad

 Smiley Those look very nice.  It is my understanding that you can use any type of soap.  I have yet to try it, but I am saving my bits and pieces of shades of green to use with some Irish Spring.  I really like the crescent shaped ones.

I'm a CP soaper and think this would be a great addition to my soaps - how exactly do you felt soap?  My guess is you just work a bit of the fiber onto the bar while wet and just keep massaging/working it and adding fiber until it forms a shell around the soap? 

Step one:  Collect Underpants
Step two:  ? ? ?
Step three:  Profit!
