Fishy Sachet-Soap Sack

Do you ever wonder what to do with those tiny hotel/motel soaps, other than toss them in the trash? With this little Fishy Sachet-Soap Sack you can stuff those tiny bars or bits of soap inside and actually hold on to them long enough to take a shower.

If you don’t need a soap sack and things are smelling fishy, tie your favorite potpourri in an organza circlet and stuff it in the fishy for a cute little sachet sack. Keep your undies, socks and other clothing items smelling fresh. Also, these make great little gifts, too.

NOTE: As of this current publication, there is NO video tutorial. If a video becomes available, I will update and link it from the pattern and this blog post.
