I decided to make a few items from this great book by Maggie Bonanomi. I had some old linen which I couldn't part with and held on for ages it seems. I tea dyed it with a couple of black tea bags for about an hour or so. I love lavender so making this very simple sachet was a given. I wrote the word using a lead pencil and stitched it up. And I had the perfect piece of old ribbon. Don't you love it when a project just flows. I made 2 of these in fact; one for the drawer and one for show and tell.
Sample from the book
Here is the other item....one can never have too many pillows. I hand dyed the background wool using onions skins and the color is such a warm color. I gave a discarded bed pillow a new life....why not? with lots of mottling.
