I will be making a few small gifts before my daughter's wedding in July. I saw this idea at The Purl Bee and knew that I would have to make these for her friends. Yes, sachets are a bit old fashion, but they are a wonderful way to keep your linen drawers and clothes smelling fresh,
and they even keep the moths and bugs away : )
All that you need to get started is some lavender(I found it at Hobby Lobby), 5 inch charm squares of a print fabric and linen, and crochet thread.
Iron about 1/4 inch on one side of the print and linen and then sew 1/4 inch around the other three sides.
Turn and then add your lavender loosely, it isn't packed tight like a pin cushion!
Sew the opening closed and enjoy the wonderful smell while you are sewing.
I didn't like the way they looked with the machine stitching, so I added some hand stitching and I think it gave them an Anthropologie look : )
I have more to make. They smell so wonderful, I think I may have to make some for myself. It would be great to have them in my fabric stash so I could smell this fresh fragrance every time I walked in my sewing room......ahhhh.
