I've had this old, brown, 100% wool, wrap around skirt for I have no idea how long. It's been in my scrap fabric drawer as long as I remember it. I've always looked at it and thought, "I bet that make some nice bags to put my bar hand soap in. The kids are always complaining about the soap being too slippery when they try to wash their hands. This would fix a problem and help me use up some of the things I've kept in my scap fabric drawer. Here are the pictures.
In the top picture, you'll notice the pink ribbon tying the bag closed. On the pink ribbon I have stitched flowers and leaves, in chocolate brown thread. I especially liked this touch.
