This quirky craft is called Soap Felting and what you are going to achieve is a pretty looking fluffy soap that works as a mild exfoliant as well as keeping your waste of soap down.
Start off with what you need
- Soap with the corners worn or grated off, it just makes it prettier
- Fleece, it must be animal fleece or it wont shrink. we are going to do the opposite of what your mum tough you!
- A sock,or cut up tights are specially convenient .
massaging the fleece and soap together
Make sure you go over all the soap, this will take at least 15 minutes of scrubbing a rubbing in all directions..
Then take the soap out of the sock and leave to dry.
Now you can prepare either a bowl with hot water or running water.
It needs to be as hot as you can manage but you don't need to burn yourself.
And now pretend you are washing your hands
A sweet and simple craft easy to enjoy with the little ones and use up your odd bits of soap all at once!
