The Municipality of Sodražica (Slovene: Občina Sodražica) is a municipality in the Lower Carniola region of Slovenia. The seat of the municipality is the town of Sodražica. It is included in the Southeast Slovenia statistical region. It borders the municipalities of Ribnica, Velike Lašče, Bloke, and Loški Potok.

In Austro-Hungary, and also in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, Sodražica was an independent municipality, until the creation of Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia. It became an independent municipality once again in 1998 with the exclusion from Municipality of Ribnica.

Historically, the inhabitants made woodenware (Slovene: suha roba), especially sieve rims, buckets, spoons, rakes and wicker baskets. The woodenware was sold to Ribnica pedlars (ribniški krošnjarji) who then travelled around the world, selling the woodenware.[2][3]
