Monogrammed Lavender Sachets

I am so excited to share a project I have been working on with you!  I just bought a new sewing machine that allows me to create and sew custom embroidery.  I have been trying to perfect the monogramming function.  I still have a lot to learn, but look at these adorable monogrammed lavender sachets I was able to make with my new machine! 







I wanted to keep the look neutral so I chose a gray embroidery thread. As for the fabric, I rarely throw my scraps away.  Because these sachets measure 6x6, I was able to make use of a few scrap pieces of nutral linen that I had from other projects.




I just love the way these single monogrammed sachets turned out!  They are so cute, and they smell divine in an underware drawer.  Unfortunately because of the complexity of the embroidery work, I will not write a tutorial on this project. 

 However, as promised I will have a tutorial on my long lumbar pillow I showed you a couple weeks ago for my Little Man's Bedroom makeover this upcoming Wednesday.


I am learning patience really is a virtue.  I am still waiting for my little man's head board.  I am beginning to think I should have gone ahead and made one myself!  Perhaps before my 3 year old goes off to college I will be able to reveal this room to you! Oh well!

  10. Shiloh, I want to be on your Christmas list! The machine I just bought cost a little more than our christmas budget! :) I had to take out a business loan. I bought the Janome 12000 if you are shopping for machines I would highly recommend this machine, it is a dream!
