With the back of the washcloth facing up, fold each side of the washcloth to the center. Place the bar of soap centered on the folded washcloth.
Fold up the bottom of the washcloth, covering the soap. Lay the pipe cleaner right above the folded part. I used a short pipe cleaner, but a long one works fine, too.
Fold down the top of the washcloth, creating a flap. Pleat and gather the top of the folded washcloth and secure with a hair elastic. You should see the ends of the pipe cleaner sticking out of both sides.
Now, fuss with the washcloth a bit to spread it out and make it look nice. Just make sure the hair elastic stays above flap, keeping everything secure. Next, use the pipe cleaner to attach the headband for the handle. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the ends of the headband, and then tuck the ends back inside the washcloth.
Almost done! Grab your fancy clip and attach it to the hair elastic on the front of the purse. So cute!
