Soap bags....Anyone made them?

I've heard of a project where you crochet around a bar of soap so that you get a scrubby and it also saves it from melting so much. I've tried this several times now, and everytime the bag stretches so that all the soap is at one end and gooshing out between stitches.

Anyone ever done these with success? Any pro-tips? Fail

I haven't tried one yet... but I could to see if I can master it? I'm thinking you'd need to use a really small crochet hook or knitting needles. Knitting

@MaiyaMayhem made a felted one which might work better because there would be no holes in the design: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/felted-soap

Oh wow, that looks great. Have you tried it in the shower / bath yet? How did it work?

Thank you for your reply

I made it for my craft table, I believe it is mean't to be a soap saver, . You can put all your left over pieces of soap in as well as using a new bar in it, made out of cotton but you could also use a 'scrubby' type yarn for exfoliation.
