The Sunrise Soap Sack is here! I am so excited to be releasing this pattern! And for so many reasons. I love bringing you all patterns that you can make, sell and enjoy. I also love designing with other crocheters in the maker community, but this pattern came with something extra that means a lot to me. I’ll tell you all about it:
The soap sack pattern was inspired by the non-profit Soap S.A.C.K. which stands for Supporting a Community with Kindness. When I happened up the founder, Stacy’s mission and how she filled a need I never even realized, I was inspired. I immediately wanted to help spreading the word of this mission.
So, I created the Sunrise Soap Sack pattern for free. My biggest hope is that crocheters in our big community will be inspired to make and give, share the pattern and continue spreading the Soap S.A.C.K. mission to help the homeless, veterans, women in transition and more.

"Our vision is to inspire communities of volunteers around the world to crochet/knit, collect and donate soap sacks to their local food pantries, homeless centers, veterans clinics, social service agencies and relief efforts."
– Stacy Wiener, Founder of Soap S.A.C.K.
