Step 1: Getting Started

 

If you are in the market for a sweet bridal, baby or any-type-of shower gift – you’ll love Melanie’s new trio of “3 Sisters Soap Sacks!” They make the perfect gift bag for soaps, lotion bars and many other skin care products. This knitted soap sack has the added benefit of being suitable for leaving in the shower, bath or displayed on a vanity counter.

With three different patterns to choose from, enjoy knitting one of these simple pretty soap sacks in “The Delanie” (a no frills style), “The Emma” (a bit of frills style) or “The Cary” (make it all frills). There are so many different colors of cotton yarn too – so you’ll be able to mix and match gift bags depending on the receiver!
