Embroidered Lavender Sachet, Appliqued Felt Flower, Blue Ribbons

I created this sachet with multiple techniques - felt applique, embroidery, and bead embroidery. The petals and leaves are made of wool felt which has been appliqued onto the heavy natural white cotton duck fabric with colorful cotton embroidery thread. French knots and a beaded center were added for more visual interest. Before closing the sachet, which is filled with more than six generous tablespoons of dried french lavender, I added four lengths of bright blue sateen ribbon - you can hang the sachet from a hanger, door knob or just tie the ribbons in bows for a decorative effect.

 

Dimensions: The body of the sachet is just shy of four inches square (10.2 cm square), and the ribbons are each 12 inches (30.5 cm) long.
