Its been almost 3 months into 2012 and I’ve done movie reviews, crazy amounts of baking and even more photography than I had expected. I even had random spontaneous posts. Who would’ve thought crafts was the hardest to put my mind to doing? I realized that to do crafts, I need to commit more time and pre-schedule a post for it.
After a month of having this idea for my boyfriend’s mom’s birthday gift, I’ve finally gotten around to doing it. This is where I got the idea: http://www.marthastewart.com/271737/felt-butterfly-sachet
I decided to add a little lavender potpourri inside a little satchet to destress and help calm her body and soul. I must say that it was pretty simple.
Here’s how it turned out:
I still would have wanted to decorate the surface of the satchet a bit. Thanks to my mom who helped refresh my memory on how to set up the sewing machine. Lets hope this gift will be a success and that my boyfriend’s mom will like it!
