A Soap Hammock

  This is the time in my life where I have made room to identify and delete the little things that bug me.
 You are washing your hands and drip water when picking the soap up from the dish and again when replacing it. In twenty minutes of crocheting I made this soap hammock that holds the soap out of the way INSIDE the sink where it can drip to it's heart 's content. Made out of jute, (If memory serves what that unmarked cone was.) it can be machine washed when necessary.

Hi from Leslie. I wondered if you come up with your own direction for the Soap Hammock? I am working on a knitted lace version in #10 crochet cotton.

I also saw this on pinterest and LOVE it--what a simple solution to an irritating problem. I am teaching a beginner class in crochet with plarn for a community project and have used this idea for a pattern to teach double crochet, rings, and counting stitches. I love a simple but useful project for learning!

As more people than I (ever) expected have asked for a pattern for the Soap hammock, I have decided write directions on how to make one. I will post it on this blog in about one week. Thank you for your interest in this creative direction.

For everyone looking for the pattern--it's posted in Leslie's archives....

What do recipes, directions and most suggestions have in common? My inability to heed them in general. So here is the gist of how to make these soap hammocks. Basically they are pockets made of fast drying materials like linen or crochet cotton. Make a rectangle that will hold the bar of soap when folded in half. Open designs are best as the airiness allows for quick drainage. The photo on the left is actually gymp which being plastic drains the best. I loved it as a kid and on a trip to Michael's saw the new generation of colors. I had to have some! Seam the sides and add the ties. These are crocheted but "I" chord is a nice choice too.
I am working on a lace knit pocket done in pale pink linen which I will post when it is finished.

Leslie, I hope you don't mind my posting it here....Seems no one could find it. Thanks for sharing bc a friend of mine just sent me the picture of the one in jute and asked me to please make it for her. Your posting an idea of what you did will make it easier.

Happy creating!
