Cross Stitch Soap Saver Pouch Crochet Pattern


This sweet little soap saver pouch was designed because my hubby doesn't like to use soap once it gets to be what he considers "too small". He will go open a new box leaving the small pieces in the soap tray.  The small pieces are still perfectly good....but really hard to hold on to. But I just can't seem to throw away the PERFECTLY GOOD but very small soap.  So here is where I collect these small pieces and use them up to the last drop!!!  This pouch is also big enough to accommodate a full size bar of soap.

Give it a <3 or add it to your Ravelry queue here.


***Feel free to make as many as you want for personal use or for profit...but please remember to give credit to me, Amy B Stitched, and link back to this page***

TIE: Leaving a 3" tail for beginning and end, Ch 50.  Thread tie through soap saver pouch according to pictures below.  Tie the ends of the Tie with an overhand knot and clip the tails to 1/4".

Thread the tail onto a finishing needle and weave the Tie in and out of the
last row of stitches.

Over lap the weaving so that the bag cinches shut.



Be Blessed!!
