I have made these covers before, but have not added an inside pocket like I did with this one. I think it will come in handy for me to put my cards and all those other scrap pieces of paper that float around in my purse. I always have lists of books, music, movies, etc. I would like to pick up when I am in the library, store, etc. Does anyone else do this?
I have started my Spring cleaning. I first start with making a new batch of sachets that I put in my closet and drawers. Of course, the ones in my drawers are prettier than the ones in my closets. The ones in my drawers are hand embroidered (by me). They have flaps in the back so that I can change the filling when they are no longer fragrant. Here is a picture of some of the sachets that go in my drawers:
The ones in my closet are made from linen (pictured below, on right).
How do I make them? I usually use the dried lavender buds from my garden, but this past year, they did not do too well. So I ordered them from Rina's Garden (firstname.lastname@example.org). I was a bit apprehensive to order them sight unseen (I was worried that they would not be fragrant), but I was happy with her/their product. The next step is to sew small pouches that will fit into the sachet covers (pictured above, in middle row). Do you know what I use...dryer sheets. I prefer to use them after they have been used because they no longer have a scent and they are more pliable. I fill them with lavender (or any other flower buds/potpourri) and sew the opening. Then I put them in my sewn sachet covers. That's it. So this is my start of Spring cleaning...I think that's enough for today, phew I am wiped! :)
