Bathtime Suds Buddy

I recently got invited to attend the birthday party of my friend's daughter, who was turning 3. I know that 3 year olds love toys, but i just can never bring myself to give a completely useless gift. I had a bunch of pure cotton washcloth yarn in my stash, and thought it would be nice to make her a bath toy out of the yarn. I found this Amigurumi Pattern through Ravelry and figured I could adapt it to be a soap saver in addition to a bath toy. I modified the body of the pattern to be smaller than the pattern calls for, and the back is made in 2 overlapping flaps as opposed to a solid piece, to create an opening to refill the soap. This has 2 simple buttons and button holes for closure.
