Step 1: Making Soap Buddy
-washcloth or recycled towel
-needle and thread or sewing machine
also useful but not necessary:
prewash cloth. Lay flat on table and make a cut 6" from the bottom straight across. This piece will be the main sleeve to hold the soap. Also make a cut 2" from the top. This piece will make the strap.
Step 2: Making the Strap
This should make a tube. Fold the top over to turn inside out and hide the seem. Using a wooden dowel may be helpful to push the end through. If you get mor than half way through and cant get the end out, hold by the top and thrust down several times.
When completely turn out, position so the seem is on the bottom.
Step 3: Making the Sleeve
If you have hemmed edges you will want those to be towards the center.
cut up the left and right sides of your folds making three pieces all together.
Step 4: Sewing the Strap a Sleeve Together
place the stap seem side up on top of that. (you can leave the strap as loose as you want to make more room for your hand to do this simplt move the ends in where you will sew creating a bulge in the middle of the strap)
place the other two pieces slightly overlapped as before on top of the stap and large piece. Line up the edges. You may want to pin the edges to make it easier to sew.
Finally, sew a square around the entire perimeter, going through all pieces.
trim the excess from the edges.
Step 5: Putting It All Together
To use just slip in a bar of soap, wet and lather!
Step 6: Finished
this is the perfect project for girl & boyscouts.
