Dear Family & Friends
Our teenage girl wanted her Japanese friend to know that she is thought of, on her special day, from as far as Bulgaria! She decided to make a handmade lavender sachet which she worked on for a few days.
|Handmade Lavender sachet
Using a pink satin material, a heart shape form was prepared.
|Step 1: cut material to sew a heart shape pattern
Two pieces of materials...one for the front and the other for the back.
|Step 2: Make two identical form for one heart sachet pocket
She embroidered a lavender flowers for the front, and her friend's name at the back
|Step 3: Before stitching it together, embroider your design
I have gathered a lot of our home grown Lavender flowers and she used this to fill up her sachet.
|Step 4: Stitch them together and leave a small gap to fill it with lavender flowers
With her patience and dedication, she hand stitch everything as neat as she could....almost as if it was done by a sewing machine...thus, it took her a while to accomplish this.
|Step 6: sew up the filler hole
To embroider a tiny kanji character on, is a challenge... but she did it!
|Step 7: The heart sachet is all done
The flowers are made of bullion stitches to make it resemble like lavender...I think she did well.
|A nice little project that my daughter enjoyed putting together:)
Best of all, this project was made full of love for a friend who has been so kind and supportive to her in her language learning journey...a very talented blogger friend who cooks wonderful food, till she took a break to enjoy more time with her grand-babies.
Well, I'm off to go and make some lavender sachets too...they're good to put in clothes cupboards and ideal little gifts to cheer family and friends too:)
Hope you have a nice cheerful day today.
