This holiday season try giving, or better yet creating, a gift that will be appealing to both scent and sight. Below is a quick guide for putting together a simple, inexpensive, and functional gift for a loved one.
Step 1. Gather your materials:
You’ll want to work with 4” fabric squares. Grab a unique patterned cloth for the front and a more basic, canvas like material for the back. While you’re at the textile store be sure to pick up some heavy-duty hand quilting thread in a color that best suits your patterned fabric.
Step 2. Select a scent:
Choose a fragrant spice or herb that’s not too overpowering, but one that will linger for quite sometime. A generally accepted aroma for both men and women is Lavender.
Step 3. Create your Sachet:
– Looking at the unprinted side of one 4” fabric square, fold the edges at ¼”, towards the printed exterior.
– Place your canvas fabric on top and pin each side together, leaving an open for filling.
– Sew together 3 of the 4 sides and then turn pouch right side out.
– Fill the pouch with about 10 tablespoons of chosen scent; pin and sew the opening.
