Simple Soap Sack - Free crochet pattern, part of the 2020 Charity Stash Bash CAL

Hello friends.  It's time for instalment three of our Charity Stash Bash CAL.  If this is your first time here at Lullaby Lodge, you can find out all the crochet along details in the link below...

This month we will be making these cute soap sacks.  Soap is one of the requested items for the shoe box appeal and while sending someone soap as a gift may not seem appealing, adding these cute little cosies, will make bath time more fun for the children.




Make sure to crochet them in lovely bright colours that they will love and remember to leave the packaging on your soap when packing up your shoe box.  I have only removed mine to take the photos, I will be using fresh unopened bars of soap to donate.

These cute soap sacks are so quick and easy to make, you could whip up a whole batch in no time at all.  They use only a few grams of yarn, perfect for using up those last scraps of cotton.  They would also make lovely gifts too, why not get ahead of all your Christmas makes.
