Scented Herbs & Essences

  • Loose black tea leaves, ½ cup
  • Whole cloves, ¼ cup
  • Dried orange peel, ¼ cup
  • Whole flax seeds, 1 cup
  • Cinnamon essential oil
  • Vanilla essential oil

 

Instructions:

  1. To attach the appliqué, place one piece of sari fabric face up, then center the appliqué on top. Cover with the pressing cloth and iron using the “cotton” setting. (Test a corner first to make sure the iron is not too hot.)
     
  2. Pin the two pieces of fabric together with the good sides facing in. Using the sewing machine and a straight stitch, sew the pillow all the way around with a ¼” seam allowance. Leave a 2” opening on one side. Turn the pillow right side out.
     
  3. To make the scented filling, stir the tea leaves, cloves, orange peel, and flax seeds together in a mixing bowl. Scent the mixture with ten drops of each essential oil and stir well. Let the mixture air dry for one hour to prevent the oil from staining the silk. Use the funnel to pour the scented filling into the opening of the pillow.
     
  4. Hand stitch the pillow closed using a hidden ladder stitch.
     
  5. To embellish the ribbon, stamp the scroll design repeatedly onto the orange ribbon using the black pigment ink pad. Let dry. Embellish the design with the metal nail head stickers.
     
  6. Gather the orange and gold ribbons together, wrap around the pillow, then tie in a knot. Trim the ends at an angle leaving 3” tails.
     
  7. Instant Tea: If mixing herbs and essences is not your cup of tea, use aromatic chai tea instead. Blend 1 cup of chai tea and 1 cup of flax seeds as the filling.
