This soap saver bag crochets up quick and easy. It’s a very simple stitch pattern, but results in a nice texture that will look great in any gift basket. The soap saver pattern is worked in back loops with the single crochet and chain stitch, which results in a light fabric that is sure to dry quick. It has a lot of stretch lengthwise, so you may want to line it before using. Or, reduce the number of rounds and stretch it over a bar of soap for an entirely different effect. As is, it is perfect for keeping your soap safe during your travels.
You can use this soap saver bag not only for your soaps, but it can also be used as a candy or trinket bag. Thus, it’s great for Easter, Halloween or any other occasion.
Crochet it in a solid color as shown, or change up your colors to match your favorite holiday or season.
And best of all, you only need a small amount of yarn whip this up.
