Since I had just finished my Linda's Blog post on the little sachet baskets I had made I thought you might enjoy a step-by-step "How-to" on how to make one of your own. If you'd like to read my post entitled "The Little Potpourri Sachet Baskets" please CLICK HERE.
My pattern and instructions for making the little sachet basket shown in the picture above follow.
Package of 1" Long Cinnamon Sticks
Miniature 4" Round Basket (With or Without Handles)
Four Scraps of Fabric - 4 1/2" wide by 10" long
Ten Strips of Scrap Fabric - 8" long by 3/4" wide each
DMC Embroidery Floss
Dual Temperature Glue Gun
(Note - These instructions are for ADULT use only as they require the use of a hot glue gun. Always use caution when working with any kind of hot glue gun.)
1. Cut ten strips of coordinating strips of fabric - each 8" long by 3/4" wide and setaside.
2. Cut the four scrap material pieces into 4 1/2" wide by 10" long rectangles for the bags according to the Sachet Lined Bag Pattern shown below. The bags should be long enough so that you can fold them in half into themselves to create lined bags.
3. With RST (Right Sides Together) and using a 1/4" seam allowance stitch each bag down one of the 10" long sides, across the 4 1/2" wide side and up the remaining 10" long side. Leave the remaining 4 1/2" wide side open for turning.
4. Turn the bag right sides out and then fold the bag with wrong sides together in half along the fold in half line, as indicated in the pattern above. This will create a finished bag with a lining.
5. Add polyfil to within 1 1/2" of the finished top of the bag.
6. Sew a running stitch 1" down from the folded edge bag with the DMC embroidery floss. Gather the DMC floss tightly and then knot the DMC embroidery floss to secure.
7. Tie one of the scrap strips around the DMC embroidery floss, knot it to secure, and then tie it into a bow. To finish the bow clip the ends of the bow to form an upside down V.
8. Glue one of the 1" long cinnamon sticks to the knot of the bow using the low temperature of the dual temperature glue gun.
9. Follow steps 1-8 above for the remainder of the three bags.
10. Place each of the bags into the basket and using the low temperature of the dual temperature glue gun glue the bottom of the bag to the inside bottom of the basket to secure it.
11. Tie six of the scrap strips into small bows. To finish the bow clip the ends of the bow to form an upside down V. Glue three of these to the center front of the basket and three of these to the center back of the basket using the low temperature of the dual temperature glue gun. The three bows should be glued one on top of the other.
12. Congratulations - You're Done! Now make as many of the baskets as you would like to decorate around your house.
