Sequin Cake Sachet

By:

Making lavender sachets is fun and easy with this tutorial from Lindsay Obermeyer. The sequin cake sachet smells as good as it looks, and it's got a fancy and whimsical cake motif on the front.

Sequin Cake Sachet

Materials:

  • 1 foot Laura Foster Nicholson's Cake Ribbon
  • 1 fat quarter linen or a 24-28 count evenweave cross stitch fabric
  • 1 foot 1/4" ribbon (I used a vintage pink ribbon from my stash.)
  • 1 package sequins (These are a matte finish with a pearlescent coating)
  • 1 bottle Aleene's® Jewel-It Embellishing glue
  • 1 spool thread to match 1/4" ribbon
  • 1 spool thread to match fabric
  • 1 ounce dried lavender
  • 1 rotary cutter
  • 1 rotary matt
  • 1 metal ruler
  • 1 pr scissors
  • 1 sewing needle
  • 1 foot tin foil
  • 4-5 pins
  • sewing machine

Sequin Cake Sachet

Instructions:

  1. Measure and cut two 4 3/4" squares of linen using your ruler, rotary cutter and rotary matt.
     
  2. Cut your favorite "cake" motif from the ribbon. This square is roughly 2" x 2" in size.
     
  3. Pin the ribbon to the center of one piece of linen.
     
  4. Machine sew it into place using a straight stitch and only 1/8" seam allowance using the thread to match your 1/4" ribbon. Remove pins.
     
  5. Place the 1/4" ribbon around the edge of the "cake" ribbon covering up your machine stitches. Pin the border into place, carefully tucking under the ends.
     
  6. Cut an arm length piece of the same sewing thread. Thread your needle and knot the end.
     
  7. Hand stitch the 1/4" ribbon into place with a small running stitch. You can machine sew it, but I love the look of hand embroidery.

  8. Cover your work surface with tin foil. Pour a few sequins onto the foil. Place the embroidered ribbon front of your sachet face up onto the foil and proceed to make small dots of glue around the center image.
     
  9. Place one sequin onto each dot of glue. If you are having trouble picking up the sequins, try tweezers.
     
  10. Allow to dry.
     
  11. Once dry, remove the foil from your work surface. Pin together both squares of linen, face side inward.
     
  12. Using the straight stitch, machine sew around the edge of your sachet with a 1/4" seam allowance. Be careful to leave a 1" gap at the bottom edge that you don't stitch.
     
  13. Cut the corners close to the edge of your stitched line.
     
  14. Turn the fabric rightside out finger pressing the seams flat.
     
  15. Fill the sachet with lavender. I found it easier using a spoon rather than a funnel of any kind.
     
  16. Hand stitch the gap closed using the ladder stitch.

Your sachet will retain its scent for 2-3 years before needing to be replenished. Enjoy!
