Some rights reserved Hi! I'm Rachel and I love to sew and make things. I have made bags, clothes, stuffed animals, and a multitude of tiny stuffed food. Making felty stuffed food with faces or jewelry is my favorite thing to do on rainy days. I also love to embroider. Right now I am working on a "Sachet." It is French and is pronounced " Sash-A." It is a cloth bag with fancy designs and dried flowers and spices in it. The design I am doing on my sachet are hearts and tiny delicate flowers embroidered all around it, but you can do any design you want.
How do you make a sachet? I will tell you. First, you make a pattern for a bag on two pieces of cloth. Then, draw designs on one half of the pattern with a sewing pencil or a regular one. Put an embroidery hoop on the penciled half of cloth. Embroider designs on top of the pencil. If you don't know how to sew, watch some youtube videos on embroidery. After you are done designing the bag, sew the two pieces together, but remember to leave the top, OPEN! Finally, in the gap, pour in dry herbs, flowers, and some essential oils. Tie the gap with a fancy ribbon or yarn and you are done. Put the completed sachet where you want things to smell nice.
