A plump Peace Dove scores some hand dyed purple yarn on the front of this hemp sachet. Amazingly pungent Washington grown lavender fills the hand embroidered square. I worked the teal blue dove in satin stitch with naturally dyed silk on pre-washed natural hemp. The sachet measures 3 1/2" (9 cm), and has a hemmed opening in the back so you can reuse it. Inside is a washed muslin pillow filled with an overflowing 1/3 cup of lavender buds. The sachet just needs to be squeezed and schmooshed every so often to reawaken the aroma.

About the materials: during my years in business, I have saved ALL the resulting fabric scraps. I mean ALL THE SCRAPS. I just can't throw useful things away! I recently decided to make sachets from the pieces. The muslin for the lavender pillows was acquired from estate sales, etc., and has been washed then dried in the Montana sun. The naturally dyed silk embroidery floss is hand dyed by a master dyer in the U.S. and is what I use for all my projects. The rich purple cotton thread was dyed by fellow Etsyite Renaissance Dyeing. Finally, the wildly fragrant lavender is from the Sequim area of Washington state, and is certified Organic.

This sachet makes a wonderful gift, and can be used in all the usual places you want a pleasant aroma. A 15th century herbal stated that lavender flowers possess a "...virtue in protecting clothes from dirty filthy beasts." This sachet would be a great hostess gift, especially if you're traveling- it tucks into a corner of your bag! Gift it to your favorite fiber freak and if you want to hang the sachet, let me know and I'll attach a pretty silk cord for a loop.

OUTSIDE THE U.S. please make sure you can receive a package with dried plant materials. You can check online with the Universal Postal Union, www.upu.int
