Awareness Ribbon Soap Sac

This is a pattern for a awareness ribbon soap sac. At first I thought it was kind of silly but when I left a bar of soap in my shower without it covering it I had a gross mess of soap stuck to the shelf.
This is a knitted pattern and would be great for fund raisers or just to keep in your bathroom.

Finishing Touches
Weave yard in and out on the bottom, then draw up tightly for a gathered bottom. Sew up back seam. Either crochet a chain or use ribbon to weave in and out of the eyelets at the top.

Insert a bar of soap, and tie the ribbon in a bow!

There ya have it! :)


  1. WOW, such a pretty pattern! I love the little detailed ribbon woven into it. I have tried knitting before, but never had the patience to complete a project. And I can't help but be amazed by every knitted piece I come across and think if I would be able to make it.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your projects! (:
