One Down . . .


. . . eleven to go.  I assembled the first lavender sachet this evening.  As you know, I am terrible at the finishing process and my hand sewing skills are not the best.  Here is the first sachet, measuring about 5" wide and 6" tall.  


I backed it in the same wool that I hooked with.  It took me less than a half hour to hook the heart, but almost twice that to finish it.  Hopefully the next ones will go more quickly.  I will try to do them a little more assembly line style.  I will also use a little less lavender and cut the backing slightly larger.  I don't like that a bit of linen is showing between the front and back, but since the wool is light colored, you probably would not notice unless I pointed it out.


I hope that your week is off to a great start.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

  3. Beautiful... You did a great job on this one and I can almost smell that lavender. One of my favorite scent.

    The first one is always the teacher. It will get easier with the others.
