As I mentioned yesterday,
I have an order for ten lavender sachets
and of course I always want to make a few extra,
so I cut out FORTY!!!
Why? I don't know...I guess because I am a freak!
I do want to be able to add some to
my Etsy shop too though.
But I do love working on these...
I get to pull out all of my lace collection and look for
just the right pieces to put together.
Each one takes a considerable about of time,
thought and planning...
then there's the sewing on of all the chosen elements,
then the filling of each sachet with fragrant lavender buds.
It has been easier looking for lace this time as most all of it has been
organized on cards and old photographs.
What in the world am I going to do when I've used all
of this wonderful old wedding dress??!!
After the lace selection,
the sewing on of the lace,
the filling with lavender,
the sewing closed of the pouches
comes seam binding bows...and beautiful buttons
all hand sewn on ~
These sachets truly are a gathering of goodies!
It's always good to be working on something pretty.
Have a happy Wednesday sweet friends!
hugs and love,
