DIY: No-Sew Sachets

While sachets aren't exactly a recipe for clean, they will leave your lingerie drawers smelling oh so fresh. No worries, there's no need for a sewing machine in this DIY, but feel free to use one if you'd like. This is a perfect way to reuse that favorite tee you accidentally shrunk or pretty cotton clothes you've outgrown. But, if you're not up for it, just buy my recent Etsy Find instead.

Supplies:

  • Fabric scraps
  • Fabric glue
  • Potpourri (try lavender and spices)
  • Scissors

To learn the steps,

.
Here's how:

  1. Cut two 5-inch squares per sachet you'd like to make.
  2. Place the two squares back to back.
  3. Glue the edges of the fabric pieces together on three sides, putting the glue close to the edges to keep it from fraying.
  4. Let the glue dry.
  5. Fill the sachet with a half cup of potpourri.
  6. Glue the last side of the sachet closed.
  7. Let it dry.
  8. If you're giving it as a gift, tie three sachets together with some colorful ribbon or yarn.

Well I made mine 2 weeks ago and the scent has faded a little, but it's still pretty strong. I used a lot of oil, though - probably more than necessary :).

Fatica- Great idea with making your own potpourri. How long does the scent usually last?

You can make your own potpourri by buying pine shavings from a petstore and sprinkle with essential oils. You can make different scent mixtures, too. I do lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine. I'm planning on making a sewed version of these sachets, grocery totes, and homemade laundry soap to give as gifts this year.
