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!
