Granny Square Soap Cozy (or Small Gift Bag)
"I love working up these sweet little bags! They can be used as a soap cozy (gift with a homemade soap or set of facial scrubbies!), a favor or candy pouch, or a small gift bag (gift with a new pair of earrings or gift bag!). I worked my cozy up in about 45 minutes, and used only a small amount of Lily Sugar n Cream yarn from my stash. I'm including a tip in the material notes section for carrying your yarn up."
