This year I wanted to added something handmade in our boxes. Our church recently went to Nigeria and the ladies shared the living conditions the locals are living in. In some places the only place to bathe is in the river. The kids have to carry their soap/towel etc with them, so I was thinking I would make a wash cloth that they could keep their soap box in. So I came up with this. This is one the the soap box can go in on its side.
This one is more of a Vertical one. I used one ball off the cotton yellow and white and some left overs of a ball of white cotton. I started off by chaining 3 over the length of the soap box and then SC around till I got the height I wanted. I then Sl St then CH leaving enough room for the button then SL ST the rest of the side. To make the button I CH 4, joined, SC in the loop then increased to the size I needed.
