CROCHET SOAP SAVERS






colors from back to front , blue,cream,mustard,
pink, light multi, dark multi and green .

I took all your e`mail advice and made the soap savers with matching face scrubbies :) , NEVER WASTE SOAP AGAIN ! Just stick a bar of soap inside the pouch , wet and scrub away , when done squeeze excess water and just hang to dry for next use . The face scrubbies are great for exfoliating the skin , leaves your face feeling as soft as a babies .

If you still do not see the color your looking for just request a special order . I can easily find a yarn to match the decor in your bathroom... These are also great to use as little pouches in your purse for loose change , jewelry or other little trinkets that end up in our purse .They also make a unique Gift or party favor . next time you make someone a gift basket , add one of these and you will see the sparkle in their eyes ! I bet your gift will not have doubles :)


Each pouch has a draw string and  measures aprox  3`` X 4 ``
face scrubbie measures Aprox 4``

All these were made with 4 ply 100 % acrylic yarns for their durability .

ETSY

In the past few weeks I have been spending much of my time promoting and selling on http://www.etsy.com Along my ventures I chat with other Etsy shop owners and get to see all their creativity come to life . I thought it would be a great idea to add these findings here on my blog  to share with everyone who enjoys reading my blog . Etsy is all about handmade or vintage . Why buy from just an ordinary retail store When You can have something custom made to suit your needs for the same price ? Most items shown in the shops are ready to ship in the size they are showing , but unlike shopping at a retail store ...if you do not see the size or color your heart is set on you can place a special order just for you and they will greet you with open arms . 

The first time I ordered something , It made me feel happy and pampered . I did not have to walk through crowded malls or get upset when I found something I wanted only to see that they were out of my size . 

Come visit us at http://www.etsy.com and get the pampering you want for the same price as a retail store. Happy Shopping ! :)

I`ll be listing shops as I come in touch with more each day  .

If your a shop owner and want to be added , just leave me a comment with your shops url or convo me and I`ll be happy to add you to the page . if you want a pic added , I`ll need your permission :)
