Scented Sachet

Nov 23, 2011

This sweet scent­ed sachet is per­fect to hang any­where in your home or leave the twine hang­er off and place it in a dress­er draw­er. I am thrilled with how well Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion stamps on muslin. Each lit­tle detail of Dr. Warn­er’s Corsets stamp, stamps beau­ti­ful­ly. If you want to make a few of these sachets for gifts it real­ly does not take much time at all.

Sup­plies Need­ed: Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion ~ Dr. Warn­er’s Corsets Stamp, Acrylic Block, Jet Black Archival Ink, Muslin, Cream Felt, Brown & White Bak­er’s Twine, Cream All Pur­pose Thread, Vin­tage But­ton, Maya Road Hang­ing Chan­de­lier Bead, Pale Pink Seam­ing Bind­ing. Cot­ton Balls, Favorite Per­fume or Essen­tial Oils, Fab­ri-Tac

Tools Used: Sewing Machine, Scis­sors, Sewing Nee­dle, Pink Shears, Straight Pins

Instruc­tions:

  • Using Jet Black Archival Ink, ink your Dr. Warn­er’s Corsets stamp and stamp direct­ly onto your muslin.
  • Using straight pins, pin the stamped muslin piece to a piece of cream felt.
  • Using Pink­ing Shears, cut around the stamped image leav­ing about a 1/2″ bor­der all around the image.
  • Using a sewing machine thread­ed with cream thread, stitch a straight stitch all around sides and bot­tom of the stamped image. Make sure to leave the top open.
  • Now apply your favorite per­fume or essen­tial oils to some cot­ton balls. If using oils make sure to place them in between non-scent­ed cot­ton balls so that the oil does not seep through and ruin the sachet.
  • Once you have the sachet filled with cot­ton balls, using your sewing machine sew the top of the sachet closed.
  • If need­ed trim around the edges of the sachet using Pink­ing Shears to even up the edges.
  • Cut a piece of bak­er’s twine to the length you would like the hang­er to be. I cut mine about 12″ in length mak­ing the hang­er a lit­tle less than 6″.
  • Thread a nee­dle with brown and white bak­er’s twine and stitch through the top cen­ter of the sachet, thread a but­ton to the bak­er’s twine and tie the two ends togeth­er.
  • Cut anoth­er piece of brown and white bak­er’s twine to approx. 12″ in length.
  • Thread a nee­dle with the twine and stitch through the bot­tom cen­ter of the sachet, thread a chan­de­lier bead to the bak­er’s twine, tie a knot and cre­ate a bow.
  • Tear a small thin strip of muslin and dou­ble knot it around the top of the chan­de­lier bead , trim to desired length.
  • Cut an 8″ piece of pale pink seam bind­ing, cre­ate a bow, using Fab­ri-Tac attach the bow to the stamp bow image just below the cherubs chin.
And there you have it… a super sweet sachet to cre­ate and give as gift to all your female co-work­ers, friends, fam­i­ly etc. this hol­i­day sea­son.
Hugs!
