If you've been following my blog for a while, or are a fan of my FB page, you've no doubt heard me singing the praises of these wonderful soap savers. They're convenient, "green", money-saving, and comfortable. They're great for ALL people... babies, grandparents, mommy... even my husband & his soldier buddies like using them!
There are many free soap saver patterns available on CPC, and I took what I liked about a few of them to create my own. It's a quick & functional project! Enjoy!
