This afternoon, I made a couple of quick and easy soap pouches for her.
From one hand towel I was able to make four pouches .. you just need to ensure that the soap will fit inside. I cut mine 12" x 4 1/2" - I kept one finished end and turned up a small hem twice on the other short cut end. Sew.
Turn up one short end 2/3rds and then the other end the remaining 1/3rd. Sew down each side, and turn right side out ... same technique as the rice bags.
Insert your soap, all done.

Now to package it!
A few weeks ago, I came across a great idea to make a gift box from a 12 x 12" piece of card stock. I have already used this idea about 4 times, and I thought I could use it again to package these soap pouches.
Following the instructions from Cosmo Cricket - make your box
Insert your nicely wrapped soap pouches
Finish off with a co-ordinating topper and ribbon bow
It needs some other embellishment , near the bottom, not sure what I will use yet (if I get time, or can "borrow" something from my sisters card making supplies)

All done ...
Do you make your Mother something handmade, buy from shop, or do something special?
