Homemade Bath Mittens And Soap

My adorable friend Laurie from better bee daily shared some fun baby shower crafts that I know you will love! I love how simple, cute and useful these bath mittens and homemade soaps are! I hope you love it as much as I do. Thanks for sharing Laurie!

Laurie shared:

An EASY and quick sewing project, these bath mittens make a great baby shower favor, especially for a bath time theme. Customize with the ribbon of your choice, and fill with handmade soap (see instructions below), rubber duckies, etc!

Instructions for Bath Mittens:

Cut a washcloth into two halves. Sew on a decorative ribbon on the right side.

Fold in half, pinning right sides facing together and sew up two sides, leaving one side open. Fold right side out. There you have it!! Your own bath mitt!

Optional: Sew on a decorative loop to hang up after your bath!

Instructions For Homemade Soaps:

Make handmade soap ahead of time, or do as a fun project at the baby shower! Your guests will love learning how to make their own personalized soap! Quick and inexpensive, all you have to do is melt, and pour!

From your local craft store, you will need the following supplies:

Soap molds (choose from a variety of shapes and sizes)

8 ounces clear glycerin soap, grated

8 drops soap fragrance (remember, you can mix and match!

Non-stick vegetable spray

Optional: Soap colorant to create glittery or opalescent soaps!

Lightly coat molds with vegetable spray. Wipe with a paper towel to make sure just a thin even coat remains. In a large microwave-safe measuring cup (with spout for pouring) place glycerin flakes.

Microwave for 15 seconds on high power. Remove and stir. Continue to microwave in five second intervals until glycerin is melted, but do not allow to boil.

Once glycerin is melted and smooth, add drops of fragrance/aroma. Stir. If desired, you can add a few more or mix and match fragrances.

For example, mixing orange and vanilla will create a yummy creamsicle smell! Add drops of colorant/glitter and stir in between drops to avoid over-coloring. Allow your mixed soap to cool until a film forms on the very top.

Once you see that film, pull the film back and pour the liquid into the soap molds. Allow to cool completely before removing from the mold.

It is recommended to continue to harden your homemade soap for three weeks before wrapping in plastic to give as a gift. Mix, match and customize!
