These neat little pouches help limit the mess of bar soap in the shower. Plus they are machine washable, making them more sanitary than a traditional loofa.

Yield: 2 pouches



  • washcloth
  • sewing machine
  • pins
  • scissors
  • measuring tape
  • ribbon or cording, optional


  1. Cut a length of the washcloth, 5 inches wide. If you are going to make 2 pouches, make sure to cut the other half of the washcloth, so that it is also 5 inches wide.
  2. Fold the bottom up 3 3/4 inches, pinning in place. Note: My washcloth was 11 1/2 inches long. If your washcloth is 12 inches long, fold the bottom up 4 inches instead.

  4. Fold the top down 2 3/4 inches, pinning in place. Note: If your washcloth is 12 inches long, fold the top down 3 inches instead.
