Mom needlepoint sachet

Designed by Jenny Henry of Jenny Henry Designs

How about making mom a sweet smelling lavender sachet to celebrate her special day?

To make the sachet, we made a little insert pillow by sewing two 5″ by 5″ pieces of coordinating fabric together leaving a small opening to add the filling. Our sachet is filled with a mixture of rice and lavender to give it a little weight but you might want to do 100% lavender or blend it with another favorite flower or herb.

Materials needed:

  • Kreinik Silk Mori (5m skeins) in colors 8000,8050,8084, 5102, 5104,1116, 1119
  • Kreinik Medium #16 Braid in 005 Black
  • about a 10" x 10" piece of 13-count mono canvas
  • fabric for finishing and herbs for stuffing
  • the main chart/graph (download the PDF): http://www.kreinik.com/PDF/MOM.pdf

Match the thread colors to the colors on the chart for stitching using the Silk Mori. Stitch the MOM letters in Kreinik Medium #16 Braid. 

This needlepoint sachet cover was made by sewing a mini envelope pillow. Trim your needlepoint leaving about a 1/2 inch seam allowance. The Ikat fabric used for the back is upholstery weight. We cut two 6.5 inch by 4.5 inch pieces and hemmed the top of one and the bottom of the other. Then layered a sandwich with the needlepoint good side facing in on the bottom and the upholstery fabric good side facing down like shown below. After pinning the sandwich securely together we carefully sewed around the outermost edge of the needlepoint. We stitched a couple extra rows to allow for this. We also use contrasting thread to see where the stitches land while sewing. Sew around all four sides. Trim off the excess, turn right side out and pop your sachet in. Happy Mother’s Day!
