Georgia Makes Felted Soaps

Hand-felted soaps all ready for the holiday market.
Our local farmer's market is hosting a holiday craft fair this weekend and I've decided to sell some hand-felted soaps there. Since in my previous professional life I sold wool yarn and spinning fiber, and I am currently in love with making soap, I'm in a pretty good position to work with what I have on hand.

I melted down and re-molded some of my handmade cold-process soap into small squares to make these. It's a really simple process, and there's a great tutorial here.

These make neat teacher gifts too, and the kids can feel really proud presenting them before the holiday break.
