Aren't these the cutest little things ever? Thanks to the generous
crafters on Pinterest, I learned how to hand-embroider these
lavender-filled sachets from a tea towel and embroidery floss that I had
laying around from other projects. The only thing that I spent money
on was the lavender inside.
Here's what I learned making them:
Measure and draw cutting lines onto the fabric. I made mine about 4" square.
Draw your designs right onto the fabric using water-soluble marker. These are available at fabric and craft stores.
Use a 4" embroidery hoop. They are small enough to fit in your handbag (so you can embroider anywhere!).
Cut the fabric using a rotary cutter, straight-edge and self-healing mat, if you have them. Makes cutting a quick, easy breeze!
Sew inside-out, leaving a gap about 1" wide along one edge. Turn right-side out and press. Fill with lavender buds using a small funnel. Hand-stitch opening closed.
