FINISHING
Wrap Cozy around bar of soap. Sew center back seam. Sew top and lower edges closed. Sew Leaf to front of Cozy. Embroider straight st veins on Leaf. Weave in ends.

Felting
Fill sink with hot water. Put on rubber gloves. Hold Cozy with one hand, rub surface of fabric with your other hand. Work over entire surface, lathering until sts begin to lose their definition. Rinse gently to remove soap residue. Allow to dry. Cozy will continue to felt as soap is used.

Felted Soap Cozy With Leaf Reviewed by Jamie Cotter on 2011-12-21 ****
Cozy is really nice but felts much better in the washer then in the sink. I crocheted the cozy leaving one end open, washed the cozy so it would felt nicely and then added the bar of soap. I just left one end open so I could put in new soap when the soap was gone.
