This past weekend I went nuts.
Cutting out sachets and needle books!
I have a few folks wanting them so I thought,
why not make a few extra, right?
I thought for sure I'd have a couple of finished goodies to show you,
but not quite yet :)
Can you get an idea of what I'm up to though?
I had this sweet old linen that had an embroidered owl on it...leaves, acorns...
It was pretty stained up so I picked the best parts to make sachets ~
The birds are from an old pillowcase. The center of the case was quite stained ~
so why not use the beautiful birds for a pincushion??
I play with hankies and other linens to see how pieces of them
will look on my needle book covers, do you like this corner?
I've been wanting to do this FOREVER!
I made my own covered button for this sachet out of a old embroidered linen....
saving a sweet flower to place in the center.
More dropcloth fabric sachets ready to be made :)
Doesn't this fabric have that French grain sack look??
A precious embroidered corner of an old hankie to adorn this barkcloth sachet ~
we took off on a little jaunt Sunday afternoon
and I had a 50% OFF COUPON for Michaels
that I just had to use ~
(you can get it online and it's good for today too!)
Here are the goodies I walked away with:
Another button I covered...a sweet embroidered acorn ~ I just love this one....
A closeup of a tiny embroidered flower button I made ~
One of the needle books...in progress :)
A few more sachets in the making...and the one on top?
A teeny pocket sachet!
What shall I place inside?
Thank you so much for stopping by to see me...
for your precious comments and for caring about what I'm up to ~
You inspire me so!!!
Wishing you a wonderful Monday dear friends,
hugs and love,
