These soap cozies are an ingenious way to make your soap last longer. Simply sew a bar of soap inside, and the cozy felts as you use it. Since Fishermen's Wool comes in big skeins, you can make multiple cozies as a wonderful party (or even wedding) favor!

Felted Soap Cozy With Cable Reviewed by Raven Wallace on 2015-11-09 *****
Super easy pattern! It took less than an hour to make and it's really cute. If I make it again, I will felt it before putting the soap in, maybe then it will dry faster. Overall, I love the pattern and I will probably be making many more of these for gifts!
