I whipped up these pear shaped sachets last night, using the great pattern and instructions from Dacia Ray. Hers were much more fancy, with a ribbon wrapped stem and a decorative leaf. I was going to make some leaves out of fabric, however once I gathered the top of the sachet, I thought it looked a little bit like leaves, so I simply stitched around the top to gather the fabric together. I think they look pretty cute like this!
I’ve had these on the list of things to make for Christmas for a while now. They were the perfect quick project to make me feel like I’m making some progress! Inside is a mixture of grapevine scented potpourri and rice. They have just enough heft to them to make them feel pleasant in the palm of your hand and are about 4 inches tall once they’re all done.
