Crafty April: Cheesecloth Potpourri Sachets

Here are some homemade sachets that I hand-sewed this weekend using cheesecloth, colored embroidery floss, and embellishments like buttons, beads, and fabric flowers.

These two sachets will make a sweet-smelling set!

I folded a long strip of cheesecloth to make the sachet shapes, and embellished the front of each using a needle and thread.

Next, I folded any rough edges over to make a smooth seam all the way around the sachet.

Then, I used the embroidery floss to sew all around each sachet.  As I sewed them up, I filled each one with apple-scented potpourri.
