This is a late post for those who might have been looking for easy-to-make crocheted gift ideas for the special men in their lives. On second thought, this is just in time for Fathers' Day, celebrated worldwide today. I've been planning to crochet some "small items" for our father friends. Small in the sense that I should be able to finish one in just an hour or less. Browsing over my electronic files and searching the net gave me these ideas --- soap saver, bottle cozy and coffee cozy.
I found several patterns for soap saver so I made one for each of the patterns I like. Here they all are...
|Pampering Massage Soap Saver by Tamara Kelly of Moogly|
|Soap Holder Body Scrubber by Julie A. Bolduc of JPF Crochet Club|
|Mint Soap Saver by Priscilla Hewitt at Ravelry|
|Water Bottle Cozy by Rachel Choi of Crochet Spot|
