Sew Somerset summer issue and my sachets

My fabric sachets are yipeeee.....in the current summer 2013 issue of Sew Somerset magazine.  I really enjoyed making these.  Guess that's because aside from my encaustic work, the next thing that really makes me happy is working with fabric.  I have been doing some merchandise bags for a couple of companies for the past two years.  So, there was a ton of waste.  I kept the discards for quite some time.  They kept adding up and up.  Those muslin bags have a lot of runs and all sort of unidentifiable stains on them when I get them from the distributor.  I had to find something to do with them.

So, the bags that I could not use for my customers became sachets.  I love them.  Here are a couple.  Make some.  They are fun and they smell yummy.
