Red Heart Scrubby is the yarn to crochet this cute soap saver bag that doubles as a washing cloth, which is why it is called exfoliating soap bag. This is an easy project and it will make a great gift to anybody.
The soap featured in my tutorial is O Naturals Moisturizing Organic Coconut Oil and Shea Butter bar soaps:
I am using two yarns in my tutorial to help you follow the steps. Because the Red Heart Scrubby is so fuzzy, I show the stitches first with regular cotton yarn and then repeat the same with Scrubby. Enjoy!
