Well. I tried WordPress and it proved to be too daunting for me to be consistent. So, I am back home on Blogger. It does feel like home. You didn’t miss anything blogged…I posted here if I posted there just in case. But, life happened! I will catch you up next post with pictures.
But, now that things are mellow…back to the hook! Today, I am posting a video. It’s down below if you want to skip ahead to it.
I take you step-by-step through my super easy, incredibly fast, beginner pattern for a soap saver pattern. I call them “Sudsy Buddy”! I know. My puns are a little painful for some. But, I mean well. This pattern is fast, easy and takes hardly any yarn. Literally, I can get two of these and two small matching cloths out of one ball of Sugar and Cream cotton. Yes, cotton! Fabulous for summertime when you do not want to be under a bunch of acrylic crocheted fabric.
Soap savers are a classic for gifting or keeping for yourself! If you want to be prepared for that surprise gifter that shows up out of nowhere with a gift in hand, just pop a bar of pleasant-smelling soap into a soap saver and tuck it into a dollar store coffee mug. Keep that with a blank gift card in your car during the holiday season. Just in case.
I make these in bulk this time of year. (It’s August…I’m in Texas).
Pleeeease, leave a comment and let me know how this pattern/tute turns out for you. And use @melodycrochet and/or #sudsybuddysoapsaver so that I can see what you make from the pattern!! As always, I truly hope that I can help inspire you. If you have a friend that wants to learn to crochet…send them to this pattern.

and tag me because I love to see what you guys make!!)
It’s too hot to be underneath anything other than cotton here in Texas! So join me in preparation
of the end of the year holiday hustle. These make great hostess gifts, last-minute gifts, coworker
gifts…keep one in the car during the holiday season. You just never know when a gift-giving
opportunity is going to pop out of the bushes at you mid-December. So awkward to be
empty-handed. Check out the video for presentation ideas!
