Directions

Sachet

  • 1. Stamp flower on one fabric rectangle. Heat set with iron.
  • 2. With right sides together, machine sew rectangles together, using a 1/4” seam allowance and leaving one short edge open for filling. Clip corners diagonally. Turn sachet right side out.
  • 3. Press to flatten seams and machine sew again, using 1/4” seam allowance, to create flat border around sachet, then fill with dried lavender. (Note: Do not overfill; sachet should be fairly flat.)
  • 4. Fold top edge down twice to enclose raw edges and machine sew closed. Machine sew again very close to top edge so it lies flat like other sides.
  • 5. Slip stitch folded ends by hand to neaten and slip stitch length of lace to front as shown. (Note: Apply dab of craft glue to prevent lace from fraying.)
  • 6. Thread cord or narrow ribbon through button and tie ends to form hanging loop, then stitch in place at top corner of sachet.

Card

  • 1. Stamp branch on right-hand side of square and add sentiment.
  • 2. Adhere stamped square to green card stock and machine sew around panel edges. Adhere panel to card.
  • 3. Cut 1-1/2” length from cotton twill and fold to form tab. Stitch button to hide raw edges and glue to bottom corner of stamped panel.
  • 4. To give as gift, stack sachets and tie with remaining cotton twill. Stamp branch onto card envelope.
