Mother's Day Sachets


I made some sachets for Mother's Day party favors.


They were really easy to make. I always find it relaxing to make crafts while I watch my favorite television shows.

To make this project you will need:

felt

embroidery thread

good sized needle

two different sized heart cookie cutters

black ballpoint pen

small buttons

dried flowers/potpourri 

Directions:

Using the black marker and two different sized cookie cutter - mark them out on the felt.


For each sachet you will need 2 large hearts and 1 small heart.


On the small heart write MOM in the middle of the heart.


I used cookie cutters to trace the hearts - but you could also make some cardboard patterns.


On the small heart - embroider the MOM. Use a small button for the "o". Then sew the small heart onto a big heart.


Now sew the two big hearts together. Before the hearts are sewn shut add the scented dried flowers.


I used a Lily of the Valley scented dried flowers to fill each of the hearts and they smell fantastic!


These are just meant to be fun little party favors that you can put in your lingerie drawer or linen cabinet.

Happy Mother's Day!
