I have been working on these crocheted little loofa soap purses. I came up with the idea when I was working on a dishcloth and decided I like how the Redheart Scrubby Yarn felt to my skin and would be great as a loofa scrubby with soap inside it. It also works as a soap saver since the soap doesn't have to sit in the soap dish in the shower or bathtub.
The best dimensions for the loofa soap purse is 3.25 wide x 4.5 long. I single crochet using a vintage INOX +4 crochet (which I think is close to a size E) hook 3.25 across then 2 single crochets and back across using double crochets. I then slip stitch the sides together and single crochet the strap (handle) and then continue to slip stitch the other side. This size works well with a bar of Ivory soap.
The one that is a little funny shaped with a bar of Dove soap in it I crocheted 5 single crochets and then made a loop and crocheted inside the loop and then doubled crocheted until I thought the size was right and then added the handle.
I am still working on the dimensions so I will have to update my blog as I go along. I thought I would go ahead and share since it isn't too complicated if you know how to crochet. You might come up with better dimensions and directions!
