I just love making little pillows and filling them with lavender, pine, or potpourri. I’m not even going to guess how many sachet projects I’ve shared on my blog. I designed this one to resemble a vintage French perfume package. It’s filled with dried lavender buds, so it smells absolutely divine, and it’s worked in cross-stitch, half-stitch, and back-stitch in just three shades of embroidery floss, so it’s quite easy to make. Perfect for a Mother’s Day present or a springtime gift for yourself, n’est-ce pas?
The sachet shown here was stitched on 18-count antique white Aida fabric, and it measures 5″ by 7 1/2″. If you prefer to work on 14-count Aida, your sachet will come out a little bigger (and will require more lavender buds). The lovely editors at Craft Ideas magazine featured this design in the Spring 2016 issue. You can click
