How to Make Felted Soap
A FiberArtsy Tutorial

I have the itch to felt and since it’s still too cold (grrr) in my felting studio to do big felted pieces, I thought I’d felt some soap today.

Why put fiber on soap, you ask? Because it makes a great scrubby! You can exfoliate and wash your skin at the same time. Felted soaps also make wonderful gifts.

Step 1: Here's What You Need:

Bar soap – any plain soap will do but you can make it fancy with scented or olive oil soap

Roving or Batting s.a. sheep or alpaca

Nylon hose – knee highs work well



<p>I love the idea but I wonder if I can do it using the needle felting method :-) never done wet felting only needle :-) </p><p>I have heaps of real Cotten balls as I live in an area where they grow the Cotten and every year I go along the road at harvest time to collect all the wind blown Cotten :-) all I would need to do is to remove the Cotten seed in the middle :-) </p><p>Thanks for such a great idea this is defiantly going on my list of projects to work one once my workshop has been finished :-)</p>
<p>Looking at your colour scheme, you should felt some bacon soap!</p><p><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Bacon-Soap/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Bacon-...</a></p>
