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. 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. 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.
