Finished stitchery sachets

I was a little disappointed when I went to the store and couldn’t find any rick rack that I liked for my sachets.  But, I did find a cute ruffle sold by the yard.  I brought it home and sewed it on and it looked awful!  Way too bulky.  So, I ripped and ripped then trimmed all the extra stuff off and sewed it on again.  It still didn’t turn out as clean looking as the rick rack in the magazine, but I liked it.  I also found some awesome potpourri called Coconut Citrus to stuff them with.  Love ‘em!  My toddler loves them so much, she finds wherever I have put them and carries them around with her.  I believe she thinks they are yummy smelling baby doll pillows. 

Sachet stitcheries

I enjoyed stitching the embroidery so much, I may have to try something else soon.



  1. Very cute! May have to make some using my home grown dried lavender! cute cute cute!

  2. They are so pretty! If you hadn't said you stitched them yourself I'd have sworn they were vintage. I've made my girls lavender sachets since they were wee and they love them too :)
