8 Days Before Valentine's Day...


My True Love Gave To Me:

8 Sweetheart Sachets
Scented with dried lavender or Chanel No. 5.
And they are made like this:
Make two "My Rose Valley" hearts from here.
With Tilda yarn from here.
 Join with a picot edge from here.
Leaving an opening on the bottom like this:
and continue to picot along one side of the bottom 
with 6 chs on the point for a button loop, if preferred.
(The button and button loop is optional.)



Front side:

 Back side:

Four were filled with cotton balls soaked in Chanel No. 5:
(Mmmmmm....I love that scent!)

And the other four were filled with lavender from last summer's garden:

Wrapped in a little cheesecloth:

This one had a bigger opening so it definitely needed a button. :-)


FUN and FAST!

Stay tuned, as there will be 7 of something tomorrow!

  1. They're completely delightful, Astri! Love the pink and green combo - always a winner! Very good idea to use cotton wool balls as fragrance carriers. All sorts of possibilities beckon! Thank you! E x

  2. They are so pretty Astri! How very decadent to scent them with Chanel! I bet they smell lovely though and would infuse all your clothes with your favourite scent if you put them in your wardrobe! xx

  4. I love your little hearts with the pretty edging and what a perfect idea to have a button opening in the back to slip in lavender and perfumed cotton balls!
