Step 1: Getting Started

 

A spin-off set of patterns from Melanie’s knitted “3 Sisters Soap Sacks” these crocheted soap sacks are just the sweet gift for a bridal shower, baby shower or friend’s birthday. Created using cotton yarn (Sugar’n Cream in the featured photos), these soap sacks work up nice and easy and take very little time to crochet. I love that these soap sacks are suitable for leaving in my shower, bathtub or even near a bathroom sink as a decorative feature.

Choose from three different patterns, from “nice and simple” and “just a bit of frill” to “all the frills.” One of these crochet soap sacks is sure to be perfect to coordinate with your next skin care gift or even paired with homemade soaps and lotion bars.
