Designed to support the mission of the nonprofit organization S.A.C.K. (Supporting A Community with Kindness). This organization’s vision is to inspire donations of bar soap to local food pantries, homeless shelters, social service agencies, and veterans clinics. By knitting a soap sack and pairing it with a sealed bar of soap, you can give essential toiletries and a lovingly handmade item to those who need them. Find out more at soapsacks.com.
When the recipient is ready to use their soap, they can use the soap sack as a soap saver by keeping the bar inside and creating lather through the sack. The decorative ridges on this sack provide light exfoliation as well as keep the knitting interesting.
This sack is knit flat with a faux seam running down the center. When it is completed, it’s folded in half and seamed along the edges to create a tube, and then the bottom is seamed to create the sack. Braided yarn is woven through the eyelets to make a drawstring to secure the soap inside.
