Woven Heart Sachets

I'm sure that many of you are familiar with the Scandinavian woven heart baskets that are prevalent throughout the Christmas season. Often made from paper, they make cute vessels for treats which are then hung onto the Christmas tree. For years, I have made the woven heart baskets out of fabric. They make durable, yet pretty containers for small gift items.

My twist on the baskets are these woven fabric heart sachets with scalloped edging. They make the perfect sachet when filled with lavender buds.

When stuffed with fiberfil, they can also be made into Christmas tree decorations.
Unlike their paper counterparts, these are durable and can be used from year to year.

Of course, there has to be a polka dotted version, just because!

Wishing you all a very enjoyable weekend. T.G.I.F.!!!

Aloha!

Absolutely adorable!! I would love to see them all over a Christmas tree. They would be beautiful and would also make great valentines gifts!

Oh, too cute! I actually still have a paper version hanging up in my kitchen from Valentine's Day. Now I'm going to have to try to make a cute fabric one like these!

I've never heard of the scandinavian baskets so you've taught me something new today! Very precious Lettie, I can see these being put to use for Valentine's too. :-)

Lettie, about the panettone, do you remember the brand mark? I think my dad said his was from Maina - just curious.

Love them! I'd like to know how to make them, I'm drying Lavendar and would use them as sachets.
