Ribbed Soap Saver
This ribbed soap saver pattern has a lovely ribbed texture, which would make for a lovely scrubber as well. However, the material is thick, so make sure to hang it somewhere where it can dry in between your showers. It also has a lot of stretch in it lengthwise, so to prevent it from stretching too far and maintain its texture, you may want to insert a liner before using.
I used a cotton material, but a synthetic would help for it to dry much quicker.
The finished size is 3.5″ across by 6″ high at tallest points. It’s a nice size for new bars, but can also be used to collect the odds and ends. Plus, it’s a great way to gift-wrap your bars of soap.

Because of its beautiful ribs, this soap saver pattern can also be used as a cute drawstring bag for candy and such. You can also make it taller to hold a phone or even taller for pens and pencils.
