Strawberry Sachets

Ally and I have been working on our strawberry shaped, lavender sachets. We estimate that with the pound of lavender purchased on Etsy we should be able to make fifty sachets. Then we'll send them off to mothers and grandmothers, sisters and friends. Just for fun, a sweet surprise. We have been hand stitching all of them, working a little here and a little there, 15 minutes at a time. Ally brought them along in the car. We carried our work box over to the couch the weekend Bryan was gone for sachet-stitching, Pride and Prejudice watching, girl time. They are a perfect quick and easy project. We're having wonderful fun. Naturally, the other kids are never far off and one afternoon they settled next to us at the table and spread out their own activities.

The pattern for the strawberry sachets is from Country Living. We ended up enlarging the stars, 125%, and combining them with smaller stars on our berries. Soon I'll show you a basket of our finished work.
