Unique organic lavender sachets - patched and embellished with sequins
I had a request for some purple themed items - purple is everywhere this season. For some time, I've had some absolutely gorgeous Eastern silk in a range of lush colours, and I remembered that purple was one of those colours. I love challenges and this was certainly a challenge, as I wanted to do something a little different to the sachets I've seen everywhere. I also wanted them to be that little bit extra special and eye catching, as deserves anything not found on the high street.
Looking through my fabrics, I also remembered the Cath Kidston purple paisley, and a purple check I picked up a while back. So I got playing... and these lavender sachets are the result. Each has been patched from the three fabrics. Some are backed with the check and some with the Cath Kidston paisley. Each has a gorgeous sequinned embellishment.
I had intended these to be pretty little drawer sachets, but they also pleaded to be hang-able, so I added a cute little gingham ribbon.
They are generously filled with lavender from my local lavender farm, one of the country's few certified organic lavender farms. I'm not always an organic addict, but I do believe lavender should be farmed organically, as it's such a magnet for bees, and after harvest, for us, so I do believe it's worth the slightly higher cost. Take a deep smell of this lavender and you know you aren't breathing in any peculiar chemicals. They measure 12 cm x 7 cm (4 1/2 in x 2 3/4 in).
