A friend of mine sent me a gift basket of the soaps she made. She had folded over a handknit washcloth and stitched up the side and one end. She slipped in a bar of soap and made a cinch up string on the open end. You could use it in the little washcloth bag or take it out and use the washcloth seperately. It was very clever, I thought. We helped them get started making soaps, but they went beyond gifts and started a business out of it.
