Embroidered Collie Vintage Handkerchief Sachet

Embroidered Collie Vintage Handkerchief Sachet


This dog-themed sachet has been handcrafted from two vintage handkerchiefs. The first is white cotton with a plain rolled edge and a collie dog embroidered in shades of white, gray, and brown. This was probably machine-embroidered as it's a bit too perfect to be hand done. Underneath is a second handkerchief, also white cotton, with coordinating variegated gray to black crocheted edging. Both are layered over a contemporary white and brown polka dot cotton fabric that is also used for the back. The layers are secured by two pierced vintage buttons—one black, one gray. It measures approximately 6 inches square.

Each of my sachets is filled with a mixture of French lavender buds and buckwheat hulls—the lavender for it's intense scent and the buckwheat for lightness (lavender can be expensive and heavy for shipping, using buckwheat helps offset both these issues). Customers have told me that the scent lasts for years and years; just give them a squeeze to refresh the scent!

You can use these sachets in your linen cupboard to repel moths but they're really too pretty to hide away. Lavender is renowned as a sleep aid so keep one on your bedside table for those nights you're having trouble falling asleep.

Please note that I cannot ship lavender-filled products outside the United States due to import restrictions on plant items.
