Soapy Fun

I spent my Saturday morning being all "wishy washy".  I felted 14 bars of soap.  Boy are my hands squeaky clean!  I went to the dollar store the other day and bought some soap.  The better deals were the Dial and Palmolive that have 3 bars per package.  But the nicer stuff is the Yardley-a buck a bar.  The square shapes are a little harder to felt nicely -those corners like to stick out.  I figured out a good way to lay out the wool-I made small "batts" with my hand carders, and used about 3 layers.  This was fun and I plan to hit the dollar store again (after my next paycheck!)

  1. Hey Aunt Kath, Ever try Kirk's Castile soap? Wal-mart carries it for around $4/3 bar pack. We love it as it lathers even in the hardest of water!

  2. Your soap looks great! For some reason, I always make an awful mess and they never look nice. Maybe I shouldn't use the rectangle bars.
