Washcloth Mitt

For a generous source of lather and to put an end to searching for the soap on the bottom of the tub, slip a soap bar into a pocket made from a luxurious terry washcloth.


  • Soap
  • Washcloth
  • Cotton Cord


  1. Step 1

    As shown below, fold the washcloth in half, and cut it to the desired length. Tape a 2 1/2-inch loop of cotton cord inside the folded cloth

  2. Step 2


    Stitch along the bottom and side edges, leaving a 1/4-inch seam allowance (make sure to catch the ends of the loop). Turn the pocket right side out. After each use, hang the washcloth mitt by its loop to dry.

    This would also make a great oven mitt too!
