Charitable Crafters














































































































Homemade Soap       

One of my latest fixations is making homemade soap. While this is totally outside the realm of fiberarts, it is quite fun! Making melt and pour soap is a great activity to do with kids but if you are making your soap from scratch with lye, it's better to do it with the kids in the other room...

So, you might be asking, what does this have to do with charity crafting? Well, one of the things that several social service organizations in our area say that they can use is soap! Keep that in mind when you get addicted to this hobby and if you're also a knitter, consider making the "felted ditty bag" and putting some of your handmade soap in it for your local battered women's shelter.
