I looked at a little scrap rectangle of linen sitting there all innocent the other night and decided I would put it to use. After a quick measure and a little trim I marked it out in six equal sized boxes and then got out the white floss again.
I chained pieced chain stitch hearts. (Can you chain piece with embroidery?) Then I pinned a little snippet of ribbon at the centre top of each one, cut some linen for the back, and then sewed a quarter inch on either side of all my lines.
I then unpicked the seams that went along the bottoms of all the little bags and did those ones again! Because they did need to be turned right side out. It wouldn't be a project from me without the ocassional brain fart. Anyway, eventually I had them all sewn up properly and I cut them apart, trimmed the corners and turned them using those convenient little gaps I left.
They are filled with lavender now and the bottoms are hand sewn shut.
So it smells really pretty in my house right now. Unless you get too close to the gerbils, but we wont discuss that right now.
