It was a twenty-nine cent kit from the early 90's called Heirloom Thistle. The project was simple enough...just stitch the design on a long rectangle of fabric, fold in half, stitch up the three sides, and stuff with lavender.
Tomorrow, I'm attending a Mother's Day lunch with some friends. The theme for the get-together is mom's celebrating mom's. Just this morning, I thought it would be fun to bring everyone a little gift but needed something quick and easy to make and these lavender sachets made from some vintage trims I've collected were the perfect thing.
I started by gathering materials. I used my widest trim which measures one-to-two inches across.
I cut a length of trim about eight inches long. Then folded it in half and using blanket, whip, or straight stitch I stitched the three open sides together stopping once at the top to add a bit of seam binding, ribbon or rick-rack for hanging, then again to fill with lavender. Even hand stitching, I managed to make these six in about an hour-and-a-half.
Won't they look pretty on a hanger or hanging from the rear-view mirror of the car? freshening the air with the scent of sweet lavender.
