If liquid soap and a bath pouf is not your thing, then this soap bag is the spa accessory for you! Just slip your bar soap inside and tie it shut, then enjoy the scrubby bubbles. This bag can be reused when your soap is gone, and it can even be tossed in the washing machine. Just be sure to give it a good rinse before, so you do not over sud your machine with all the soap still in the bag.

  1. Hi Jesse! I’m a bit confused. You say to chain 11, but I don’t know how the whole bag of perhaps 25 stitches is achieved. It seems that I’m only crocheting one side of it. HELP! Thanks! Carol
    (I must be brain dead on patterns. You aren’t the first designer I’ve contacted.)

  2. I love your patterns, however, I have had to take two apart so far, I am not understanding your counts on the bath mitten, got stuck on row 3 and also on this soap mitt I can’t understand how you can crochet in a front loop of a chain stitch, any help is appreciated Thank you

    • There are 3 loops on a chain. The two on top (front and back) and the one on the bottom. You would have to tell me what you don’t understand on the bath mitt for me to help with that one.

      • Are you talking about at the beginning? Make a chain, there are 3 “loops” on each chain. On the top (the part that looks like connected tear drops) there is a front loop and a back loop, then when you flip it over there is a ridge of loops on the bottom. Thus 3 loops you can work into. For the first round of the soap bag you are using the top, or tear drop, loops. First you work just in the half of the tear drop that is facing you, then you turn and work in the other half.
