Secret Treats

I like to bake biscuits for my friends and neighbours at Christmas but this year I have been both a bit ill and a bit busy and decided to sew lots of lavender sachets instead... I've been sewing them on evenings when I've been spaced out and in need of something relaxing to do, and it's nice getting them done in advance instead of relying on having the time and energy for a two day baking marathon! I've been making lots of the little squares, most with a heart on one side with ribbon and button details. Here are the first batch, front and back:
It is immensely satisfying seeing them all in a pile like that, but already ten of these have been wrapped and given as presents. These ones are some of my favourites so far...I especially love the little polka dot button in the middle of the heart, it just looks too cute and is making me want to sew buttons on everything...

Such lovely colour combinations - just as yummy as home baking but much longer lasting!

I know re: buttons x there is just something about them? appeals to our collective nature, to hoard little things and appreciate their nice-ness? They just 'finish' something don't they? Love lavender too.

Baking and Making - my life!

I wasn't sure if Felt was a good material for making lavender sachets. But seeing yours (so, so beautiful and original) I have to try it!
