Suds Gift Fun12/30/2017 ByMary I made 14 of these for Christmas gifts, adding some locally made soap and a suction cup with a hook ($.79 at my local True Value). The directions were clear and easy to follow, with a key exception. Despite buying two different cord stops locally, I was unable to get the drawstring into the stops. So I purchased some cord, cut it to 18 inches and knotted it after putting it through the fabric top. It is quite likely that I will make more of these, maybe for my Sit and Sew group next Christmas.
