I just love these washcloth soap holders. By placing the soap in the holder I can use the soap and scrub at the same time.  I can use my favorite soaps without wasting any of it.  This is a fun beginner sewing project that anyone with basic sewing skills can make in just a few  minutes.  These washcloth soap holders make terrific gifts along with some special scented soaps. Take a few minutes to learn how to make a washcloth soap holder by following this step by step tutorial.  

I used terry cloth that I purchased from JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby or Fabric.com to get terry cloth for your project if you like.  This post contains affiliate links that if you click on them and make a purchase I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.

Fold the top of your fabric until it meets the bottom of the ribbon.  Fold down the bottom of the fabric until it reaches the fold and pin.  Make sure the ribbon is on the inside of the fabric.  Stitch the sides using a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Step 5: Turn right sides out 

Turn the holder right sides out so the seems are on the inside and the ribbon is on the outside.  Insert your soap and you are ready to go.
