Sachet Needs

Step 1:

Pin the heart pattern to your scrap fabric and cut two.  You can make the heart larger or smaller to suit your needs.  Cut a piece of lace that will go around the perimeter of your heart.  Cut a piece of ribbon either 4″-6″ long to serve as a hanger.  Mix 1/4 -1/2 cup of rice with 6-10 drops of essential oil depending on the size of your heart.  I used nearly 1/2 cup of rice for my heart and about 8 drops of essential oil.

Step 2:

Place the two cut out heart pieces right sides together.  Place the lace between the layers and the ribbon at the top of the heart.  Sew around the perimeter catching all layers leaving a small opening to turn the heart and fill it with the rice mixture.

Once the heart has been sewn.  Turn it so it is right side out.  Use a funnel to pour the rice and essential oil mixture into the opening you left when sewing the heart.

To make this sachet, cut out the pattern.  Sew the rickrack diagonally across one of the heart shapes. Place the heart shapes wrong sides together, insert a folded piece of ribbon for the hanger and add the bias binding.  I used pre-made bias binding for this project but you can make your own by following my bias binding tutorial.  You can either pin the biding or use clips.
