Needlepoint Lavender Sachet For Mom

IMG_1469

How about making mom a sweet smelling lavender sachet to celebrate her special day? This “Mom” design is available through Kreinik as are all the super luscious threads that I used to stitch this.

To make the sachet, I made a little insert pillow by sewing two 5″ by 5″ pieces of coordinating fabric together leaving a small opening to add the filling. My sachet is filled with a mixture of rice and  lavender to give it a little weight but you might want to do 100% lavender or blend it with another favorite flower or herb.

This needlepoint sachet cover was made by sewing a mini envelope pillow. Trim your needlepoint leaving about a 1/2 inch seam allowance. The Ikat fabric used for the back is upholstery weight. I cut two 6.5 inch by 4.5 inch pieces and hemmed the top of one and the bottom of the other. Then layered a sandwich with the needlepoint good side facing in on the bottom and the upholstery fabric good side facing down like shown below.

After pinning the sandwich securely together I carefully sewed around the outermost edge of the needlepoint. I stitched a couple extra rows to allow for this. I also use contrasting thread so I can see where my stitches land while sewing. Sew around all four sides. Trim off the excess, turn right side out and pop your sachet in. Happy Mother’s Day!
