Crafts Using Bars of Soap

This is a vintage pattern that was originally made with an oval bar of Sweetheart soap. Since Sweetheart soap is no more, you will have to improvise. The soap that I have used for this pattern was found at the Dollar Tree store. The fish in the picture at the right is sitting on the box that the soap came in.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Stack the squares of net, lay soap on the net diagonally in the center of the square.
  2. Gather in your hand and draw as tightly as possible at the back of the bar. See photo.
  3. Secure the nylon net with a twist tie. Or you could use a piece of yarn. Pull the nylon net gently to form the fish tail.
  4. Using photo as your guide, glue the eyes in place.
  5. Cut a small heart shaped mouth from the felt or foam and glue to the front of the fish.
  6. Push 3 pins along the top at a slant for the fin.
  7. Push 3 pins into the bottom of the fish, 1 in front, and 2 behind. This is the base for the fish to stand on.
  8. Glue sequins of assorted colors randomly on the tail of the fish, if you wish.

This is a vintage craft from the 60's made from nylon net and a bar of soap. The kids could help with this one. I think the shape of the Dove soap has changed so you may have to modify the pattern or the bar of soap to complete this project.
