Luck of the Irish Soap Saver...

My Luck of the Irish Soap Saver works up really quick.  I was inspired to make this when I realized we had no whole bars of soap but multiple small pieces at different stages.  So, I needed something made to utilize the small pieces, as well as something to accommodate a whole bar.  And, with March upon the horizon, I decided to make it Irish-themed...

I used a 4.5mm hook and "I Love This Cotton" Yarn from Hobby Lobby.

This makes a super cute gift for hubby or to include in a gift basket to a friend....
