 Fabric Flower Sachet

Supply List:

Extreme Adhesive Squares
Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares

Quite awhile ago, I created this simple fabric button pouch for a project idea. I ended up going a different way with the design but decided to keep this little sachet pocket since it turned out well enough. As an afterthought I decided to dress it up with fabric flowers and leaves as well as a few buttons by simply using Extreme Adhesive Squares.

The flowers and leaves are circles and ovals that have a gathering stitch to create their shape. Each petal is done individually. Then I used both the regular sized Extreme Adhesive Squares and Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares to assemble them together. I also used them to adhere the buttons to the center of the flowers and around the arrangement.

I’ll fill the pocket with another lighter weight fabric filled with lavender and this sachet is ready to tuck into a drawer or closet.
