You can mix up the colors of the threads and fabrics to coordinate with whatever Mom likes. It has a sweet touch of lavender but you change that up as well!

Lavender Needlepoint Sachet

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
● DMC Pearl Cotton – Ecru, 368, 783, 961, 4045, 4110, 4170, 4200
● 1/4 yard of fabric – Buttercream Poppy Cotton Fabric
● Tapestry Needle
● Fiberfill
● Needlepoint Canvas
● 8″ Ribbon Piece
● Lavender
● Rose Needlepoint Pattern

Using the pattern as a guide, stitch the rose first with a Tent Stitch. This is like a cross stitch, but only one-half of the stitch. Each stitch is done on the same diagonal. For all the stitching, use doubled pearl cotton.

Once the rose is stitched, stitch the leaves in the same way.

Once your rose is stitched, fill in the area around the flower with a long satin stitch that covers four squares of the needlepoint canvas. Make the canvas a 4″ x 4 1/2″ square of filled stitches.

Cut two strips of fabric 1″ x 5″. Sew the strips to each side of the needlepoint with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Trim the canvas to the seam. Cut two strips of fabric 1″ x 6″ and sew the strips to the top and bottom of the canvas. Trim the remaining needlepoint canvas along the top and bottom as well.

Cut a piece of fabric the size of your front piece. Fold the length of ribbon so the ends meet and place it centered along the top edge of the front piece. Place the back right sides together with the front and sew around the sides, leaving an opening at the bottom of about 3″.

Fill the sachet with fiberfill and lavender and hand sew the opening closed.
