Sew a bunny soap pouch that’s perfect for Easter baskets – and also can be used all year!  The little soap holder with bunny ears makes bathtime fun while also cutting down on the mess around the tub.  Just slip a bar of soap into the drawstring pouch and you’ve got a fun bathtime accessory!

I’ve got a free pattern for my Sudsy Bunny DIY Soap Pouch below.

Bathtime is made more fun for kids (and less hassle for their parents) when they’ve got cute bath toys!  But this little bath toy also helps them wash up.  The terry cloth lathers up nicely and won’t slip out of your hands like a bar of soap does.   And you can use the drawstrings to hang it from a faucet handle or hook so the wet soap doesn’t make a mess on the side of the tub.

And of course, since it has those bunny ears it’s also a fun little surprise to add to an Easter basket!  I don’t know about you but I get tired of all the plastic trinket-y toys we give our kids at holidays that end up immediately broken or cluttering up the house.

The DIY soap pouch is fast and easy to make, which is nice if you want to make multiples!  The only special material you need is terry cloth.  You can usually find it at the fabric store, but if you can’t you can also just use a hand towel.

Supplies

¼ yard terry cloth, or a hand towel

Accent fabric – scraps quilting cotton

Drawstring – 1 yard ribbon or cord, ½” wide or narrower.
