If you have been on Pinterest at all, there is no doubt that you have seen some of those herbal and natural handmade soap tutorials. I’m not sure about you, but for me, if I am going to go through the work and care that it takes to make my very own awesome herbal soap, I don’t want to waste a bit of it! Enter the crochet soap saver sack.
I’m sure you’ve seen them. Cool, huh? What is equally cool is how quick and easy they are to make. You will not only want to make one for yourself, but for friends and family, too. They would make a wonderful addition to a natural soap gift basket.
