Gardener´s Soap

When you are a gardener like me you know for sure this problem: dirty, dirty hands. Not to talk about the fingernails! 
Well, I figured I need a soap that exfoliates and is handy enough to keep in the garden. 

So here it is: Gardener´s soap!
Basically it is a bar of soap in a drawstring bag out of burlap/jute. It will clean your hands and get rid of that dirty dirt!



You need:
1 bar of your favourite soap, I used a organic one, lavender and rosemary
burlap/jute
twine
scissors and a needle


First, cut a piece of burlap to cover your soap bar. Basically we gonna stitch up a little bag for the soap.
I seamed one side, folded the other over the soap bar and stitched it up.
Next step is to close the bottom, by simply sew the two sides together. Remove soap, so it is easier to work with.


Once you got a bag, that is open on top, put the soap back in. Stitch your twine with a running stitch through like a drawstring. Cut the burlap about 1 1/2 inch over the drawstring. And you´re done!
