Crossed Stitched Pot Pourri Envelopes
I'm obsessed with lavender - not only does it have a sweet and soothing fragrance, it is a natural moth repellent too (three cheers for Mother Nature!).
I made pot pourri envelopes to hang on my hangers on Monday. I folded the top corners (of the fabric with the motif) into 45 degree angles and sewed along the edges to create a flap. With wrong sides together, stitch the side and bottom edges. Neaten the edges with pinking shears and secure the flap and back with Velcro. For me, a project is not complete without a bow.
Decorative yet functional, surely Martha Stewart would consider this a "Good Thing"?
