This pattern - Sweetheart Sachet by Crabapple Hill Studio - has been in my pattern box for absolutely years. On Saturday morning I finally decided to make a start on it! So, I traced the stitchery design onto a piece of cream floral fabric, and embroidered the design using a variegated thread by Cottage Garden Threads. I changed the front slightly, using some vintage buttons for embellishments...
...the appliqued heart was stitched into place and it has been stuffed with a mixture of wool wadding and lavendar so it smells wonderful. A selection of beads have been hand stitched around the outside of the middle heart and a decorative bow is made with wired ribbon stitched into the seam, to enable the sachet to hang on a coathanger or door knob...
...I couldn't resist making another one using scraps of vintage lace trimming to embellish the front of the sachet, again filled with scraps of wool wading and lavender. These extra large lavender hearts are the perfect addition to your boudoir! These would make beautiful bridal shower gifts, along with a matching embellished padded coat hanger, which has given me a few more creative ideas.
