If your stuck for a small gift idea why not make one of these cute little soap bags for a friend.
Step one – make a fold of 2cm across the top of each fabric square and sew a seam along each one.
Step two – place the two pieces of fabric facing each other and sew them together leaving the hemmed section at the top open.
Step three – turn it inside out and poke out the corners.
Step four – use the safety pin to thread the ribbon through the hemmed section at the top.
Step five – tie the end of the ribbon together
Step six – place the soap inside and pull the strings tight.
These also make great wedding favours. For other gift ideas you could place a pouch of lavender inside or use he bag to store a vintage brooch.
