Soap Saver Pouch (Free Crochet Pattern) - Tea Rose Spa Set, Part 3 of 4

by - April 25, 2019



Hello my fellow crocheters,

Here's my soap saver pouch design, and I'm thrilled to share it with you!  It's part of my Tea Rose Spa Set, which includes three other free patterns.  Click the image below to see and read about the entire set!


The mesh soap saver pouch is super quick, easy, and beginner-friendly.  It's a 30-minute project, so even for you busy folks who have just a measly half-hour to spare for crafting, you can make this cute baggie in one shot!

Since this soap holder don't use up a whole lot of yarn, it can be great stash buster if you have some extra cotton yarn lying around.  I for one used Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn for these scrubbies, and thought it was the perfect choice!  This yarn feels so durable and I know it'll hold together well for long-term use.


Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn in the colors Tea Rose and Camomile, and White for the string.

I must point out that this natural soap saver bag makes an excellent gift for so many occasions!  They're great as a Mother's Day gift, birthday gift, end-of-the-year Teacher Appreciation gift, retirement gift, or a "just because" gift for anyone who could use a pick-me-up.  All you have to do is gift it with a cute bar of soap, and it'll make such a lovely, lovely present.  These nifty, little cinch-up baggies are also great to include at craft fairs too!

Introduction:
The Tea Rose Spa Set is designed to pamper and invigorate the skin, body, mind, and spirit. This collection of reusable, eco-friendly skin care essentials and spa tools includes a crochet face scrubby (make up remover pad), bath pouf, soap saver pouch, and facial washcloth. All designs are quick and easy, and suitable for beginners. There is no sewing or attaching of pieces needed; all items are worked in one piece.
The face scrubby includes a special puff stitch worked in the round, and can be crocheted in 15-20 minutes! It can be a great stash buster if you have some extra cotton yarn lying around. The bath pouf (“loofah”) is very quick to work up as well, taking only about 45 minutes, and uses less than one full skein of the Lily Sugar n’ Cream yarn in this pattern. The mesh soap saver pouch (or, soap holder bag) has a nifty little drawstring that fits a standard bar of soap, and takes only 30 minutes to crochet. Lastly, the facial washcloth can be whipped up in an hour’s time, and features the beautiful – but oh, so easy – Suzette stitch! 
This gift set is perfect as a Mother’s Day gift, birthday gift, teacher gift, retirement gift, or even an appreciation “thank you” gift for anyone that could use some pampering and self-care! They’re also great for selling at craft fairs.
