We all made these as kids, right? With a motley crew of colors, and charmingly lumpy fabrics, these potholders were certainly a staple of my childhood. And I'm willing to bet many a mother has received these as gifts over the years.
Looking around for a fun and easy project this weekend? It doesn't get more basic than soap. The shapes are limitless, and — if that boat is any indication — the end product is equally as fun as the process.
