Thread to match felt
Small hole tulle – 1/8 yard will make 2 sachets
Approx 4 tbs Lavender flowers or potpourri for filling
Helpful but not required;

Template of outline – The sheep shape is below but you can use just about any shape.

Let’s make our drawers smell good!
Tape or iron your template onto one of the felt rectangles and cut center out.
It helps to remove the center a little at a time giving your scissors more room to work so cuts are as clean as possible.
Fold the 1/8 yard of tulle in half and fold like an accordion pin into place behind cutout.
Stitch around cutout shape with a running stitch and matching thread to attach.
Cut away any tulle that extends past any of the sides. If desired use a pencil to lightly mark out straight lines for stitching.
Lay front piece on top of matching felt back and stitch together using a backstitch…
What’s a back stitch you ask? A back stitch is the running stitches drunk older brother.

See that’s not hard at all!
Fill with lavender or potpourri before closing.
