Ingredients:

14.4 oz. pomace olive oil
9 oz. 76° melt point coconut oil
1.8 oz. castor oil
1.8 oz. refined & deodorized cocoa butter
1.8 oz. refined & deodorized shea butter
5.4 oz. grapeseed oil
1.8 oz. safflower oil
1.5 oz. beeswax
1 oz. stearic acid

12.2 oz. distilled water
4.9 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide pellets

2 oz. Vera Wang fragrance oil
1 oz. Australian Midnight Black Clay
.5 oz. fine jet black glitter
Red iron oxide pigment powder to suit

Directions:

To create this homemade cold process soap recipe you’ll need to follow my basic cold process soapmaking instructions.

Begin by measuring out the water into a large Pyrex measuring cup or heat proof pitcher. Next, using a digital scale weigh out the lye then slowly pour the lye into the water. Mix until all the lye has dissolved then set the lye-water aside in a well ventilated area to cool.

Now weigh out the soapmaking oils, butters, stearic acid and beeswax and combine in a large stainless steel pot. Heat over medium heat on the stove until all the ingredients have melted then set aside to cool.

Once the soapmaking oils and lye-water have reached around 95°-100°F you’re ready to make soap!

Slowly pour the lye-water into the soapmaking oils and mix with a stick blender until you reach a light trace. Pour a small amount of this soap into a large Pyrex measuring cup then add a pinch of red iron oxide pigment powder. Mix with the stick blender to fully incorporate the pigments. Add more red iron oxide pigment powder if needed until you reach your desired shade of pink. Set aside.

Now add the jet black glitter and the Australian midnight black clay to the soap in the pot along with the fragrance oil. Mix well with a stick blender until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed and soap has thickened. Pour half of the soap into your prepared mold then follow with the pink colored soap you mixed previously. Finally pour the rest of the black soap over the pink layer you just poured.

Cover the mold and set the soap aside for 24 hours. After 24 hours you can unmold the soap and cut it into bars.

Notes: This soap starts out slightly softer and can easily be rolled into soap balls. If you want a harder soap right away reduce the water to 12 oz. Also the final bar will have a small amount of sparkle. If you’d like a heavier sparkle increase the glitter to 1 oz. or more as desired. Additionally, if you want a palm free soap but are unable to source palm free stearic acid, you may omit it from the recipe or simply substitute it with more beeswax.

This homemade palm free cold process soap recipe will fit into one of my easy DIY Wooden Loaf Soap Molds. The final loaf will yield anywhere from 10-12 bars of handmade soap depending on how thick you cut them. You can learn how to make a soap loaf cutter here for even bars.

My friend Ben is a crafty seamstress – seamster? – who is on his way to becoming a sewist – “someone who creates sewn works of art, which can include clothing or other items made with sewn elements.” Currently he stitches backpacks together with a craftsmanship I doubt I could master with my current lack of patience. Recently, however, he informed me that he’s decided to make his own clothing. And how could I expect any less from a fine arts major and alumni of my own Alma mater? However, not only will he be making his own clothing, he has also offered to sew together my dresses that have been sitting stalemate for over year at my grandmother’s house. I have several dresses from vintage patterns that I’d bought fabric, thread and notions for and even went so far as to cut out not only the patterns but the fabric. as well. They simply need stitching.
So when I ran across this diy project for making a diy felt travel kitty sewing kit, I thought it’d make an awesome gift for him with his birthday less than a week away. Unfortunately, I’d probably have to man it up a bit. Perhaps with a Peter Rabbit character wearing a bow tie. I’m not sure kitties are his thing.
Anyhow, you can find this fun diy sewing project over at Sew4Home. It’s a super simple project that makes sewing easy and would be great for kids just learning the craft or thread and needle challenged grown ups kind of like me. So swing into your favorite craft store, grab some needle and thread and a collection of colorful felt and get started!
