DIY Scented Photo Sachet as Homemade Gifts

If you have an overflowing basket of fabric scraps, like yours truly, this is a great crafty way to make a dent in that leaning tower of fabric. Additionally, you can make this a no sew project by using fabric glue.

Supplies
Lightweight cotton fabric
– Print & Iron Cotton Fabric Sheets (this is the type I used)
Sewing machine (or fabric glue)
– Sewing scissors and straight pins
– Iron
– Potpourri (Ideas: lavender, rose buds, citrus peels, rice with essential oils)

Optional
Embroidery thread
– Felt fabric

Follow the directions on the cotton fabric sheets to print the photos. Once dry, cut out and place face up on the fabric. According to the directions, iron the photos onto the fabric.

Use the size of the front of the sachets to cut fabric for the backs of the sachets. Pin the pieces together, wrong sides facing each other. Sew OR use fabric glue to secure THREE of the sides.

I filled the sachets with rice scented with an essential oil, like lavender. Once filled, pin and sew (or glue) the fourth side of the sachets.

    Ok, this is something I really think I can make and even though my kids are adults, I have a recent graduation pic and could give this to my one grandparent since she missed the event. Super excited for all you are teaching me!

  2. Cathy Lillie says:

    These little sachets are adorable! I’d love to do these for my grown daughters with a picture of their pets! I would probably do a little cross stitching on them, as well. Thanks for the idea!
