Sweet Lavender Sachet

by - January 12, 2012

Sticking to my new year's resolution to use what I already have for future craft projects, I whipped up this sweet little lavender sachet today.  I have a gazillion of these little glassine bags and thought they'd make for a nice sachet:

I simply hand-stamped the French script on the front.  I added the little birdy as an after-thought and I quite like it now.
Then I added some lavender buds.  I stitched the opening closed.  And guess what happened?  You couldn't smell the lavender!  Doh!  So I had to poke itty bitty holes all around it so you can actually smell the aroma.  I get just enough of the smell without it being to overpowering.

Now to figure out if I want to add it to my unmentionables drawer or the hallway closet.  Decisions, decisions...
