And of course I did not stop at one shoe! If you love vintage decor elements or just beautiful things you can try to make this kind of sachet.

You need to do:

Cut the pattern pieces out and apply a pencil contour to the fabric. Do it with a small allowance for seams. Cut all the details out

Neatly sew correct details together, leaving holes. In these holes you’ll put batting. After you’ve filled all body parts, sew up the holes

Try to do it with a hidden seam as shown:

Now attach paws and tail to the body. Sew them with cute small buttons

Choose color of eyes and nose and arrange cat’s face with the threads. Then you can decorate your cats with lace and ribbon

For small fragrant pillows I used fabric patches and dried lavender

Then sew pillows to the paws

And here is the finished Tilda Cats with a light scent of lavender!

Have a good meоw!

Sachet Heart

It will be Valentine’s Day soon and everyone prepares gifts to their loved ones. I made a cute sachet. In fact, sachet heart because it’s Valentine’s Day! I used the beautiful felt from the set that I bought on Amazon, satin ribbon and two small buttons. I think kitties look great!

Between two hearts I sewed a ribbon

Then I put filler and flavor to my sachet

And then I sewed ribbon bow to heart could hang

And that’s what we have! A wonderful little gift or addition to it!

Felt Panda-sachet

A few small pieces of black and white felt useful to make a cute panda. It may be a toy or sachet as you wish.

I don’t have a pattern because I cut out the details using just my imagination. You can do it as well as I, be sure!After preparing all the details they should be neatly sew together.

For my panda I used flavored filler French Scents but you can take some herbs or just use the filler.I also sewed to the panda a ribbon so sachet could be hung, for example in the car!Escher immediately liked the cute little panda and my friends who got it as a gift are also very satisfied!
