Soap Buddies

I've seen soap pockets around on the web, but didn't consider them seriously until I reread the idea today in The Preschooler's Busy Book by Trish Kuffner. It was a slow day here as we're recuperating from illness and this struck me as an easy spur-of-the-moment project. I took an old washcloth and cut it in half. (The half piece is just the right width for a bar of soap and long enough to wrap around about a time and a half, creating an opening in the back to insert a new bar of soap, much like a pillow-cover). I stitched one end closed, added silly faces, then stitched the other end closed. We call them our "soap buddies." Now if I could just get around to putting the kids in the tub with them.

Those are so cute! Makes me wonder what to do with all the towels that are wearing out around here. Besides put them in the garage rag bag, that is.

That's a great idea! We ran out of liquid soap last week and had a bar of baby soap and I let Keely "wash" herself but of course she kept losing it! So, that would be a good idea if I could ever get to my crafty projects...many ideas I have gotten from you!!
