Shower Melt Holder

Initially, my goal was to make a shower melt holder. My friend gave me some amazing shower melts with a mesh bag. I took one look at that and said to myself; I can crochet a pretty and mini bag holder for my shower.  The search was one for a cut little pouch. While there are a variety of drawstring bag patterns on the web, what I had in my mind was not to be found. Therefore, I kept trying until I achieved the look and size that was right for this.

Shower Melt Holder in Fun Colors

I am working on a set of SPA crochet patterns and this little shower melt holder will be included in the set. These were made in several colors that are perfect for a relaxing SPA day. However, my yarn stash had a lot of red and white cotton yarn. Here are a few photos of the pretty little bags in red and white.

Once I had made a few mini bags in red and white yarn, I realized how cute they would look filled with little treasures. What a cute presentation for that special someone in your life.

Flower Applique on Drawstring Bag

As I was making the SPA set, I had quite a bit of leftover scraps of yarn. Flowers are easy and quick to make. If you would like that pattern, you can get that one here. In the photo, three of the small flowers are attached. I left the yarn strings on the flowers long so it can be tied and woven back and forth in the flower to hide the yarn ends. I then trimmed off the leftover yarn.
