IC#10-Lavender Sachet and Bath Salts Set

Iron Craft challenged us to create a stitched project.  I chose to stitch up a little gift for my mom for Mother's Day!  I know Mother's Day was two weeks ago, but I didn't see my mom until this past weekend so we had a late Mother's Day.  My mom loves old fashioned, floral things, so I thought a little gift set would be perfect for her.

I started with some fabric scraps that I got from my recent craft supply swap.  I started by stitching a heart onto one of the pieces.  I tried to make it look "scribbly."

Next, I stitched along the outside leaving a bit open.  I turned it inside out and filled it with lavender.  I then stitched along the outside edge one more time.  This was challenging because the lavender kept getting in the way; I won't do it this way again :)

Next, I filled a mason jar with some bath salts (store bought) and added a piece of fabric to the top.  Finally, I added a label to the jar.

That's it!  This was a quick, easy project but turned out quite cute.  I think my mom really liked it :)

  2. That is a really great gift & looks like more work than it is.

  3. Very nice and so simple! I'm sure that your mom will love it.
