My little sachet deserves it's own special stand.
Following up on yesterday's post these are the next steps you need to complete a pretty beaded sachet. The little fabric pillow looks pretty on its own but it sure looks fabulous with some beading. I prefer to sew beaded edges with real beading needles because the cotton fabric is a little stiff. Regular sewing needles are hard to work with. They are too thick and make really large holes for each stitch.
I picked up the same group of five beads on my needle. After stitching the group of five in place I often did a quick back stitch so the beads were held securely in place.
Once I had beaded the top and both sides I stopped to stuff the sachet with fiberfill and some lavender.
I used extra ribbons on the bottom after I sewed shut the opening.
Here it is. A sweet beaded sachet.
