Lavender sachets

I finally did! I started re-doing my room. I know, a mounth later than i was supposed, but you know how it's said, better later than never. Last week I managed to paint the walls white. I have to say it was a though work because the wall surface was not uniform at all. I had to paint it 3 times to get a satisfactory white.. I don't have pictures right now, and I want to install the plinth before I'll show you the room..But this will have to wait untill I'll be able to get another week off.

In sfarsit am facut-o! Am inceput sa amenajez camera mea. Stiu, o luna mai tarziu decat era prevazut, dar stiti cum se spune, mai bine mai tarziu decat niciodata. Saptamana trecuta am reusit sa vopsesc peretii in alb. Trebuie sa va spun ca a fost o munca titanica pentru ca suprafata peretilor nu era delco uniforma. A trebuit sa dau 3 straturi de vopsea ca sa ajung la un alb satisfacator.. Nu am fotografii momentan, si vreau sa montez plinta inainte sa va arat camera.. Dar va trebui sa astept pana cand voi putea sa-mi mai iau o saptamana de concediu.

Meanwhile I want to show you the things I am working on right now... Sachets with lavender.. I bought dried lavender flowers and I'm using my immagination to create beautiful and romantic scented sachets so here you are the first pattern. 

Intre timp vreau sa va arat lucrurile la care lucrez acum... Saculeti cu lavanda.. Am cumparat flori uscate de lavanda si imi folosesc imaginatia pentru a crea saculeti parfumati frumosi si romantici asa ca acesta este primul model.

I used red cotton, white cotton lace and white cotton embroidery for this one, all tied up with red lace
Am folosit bumbac rosu, dantela alba din bumbac si broderie alba din bumbac, totul legat cu panglica rosie

You have to know that the beautiful white cotton emboridery is actually cut out from an old vintage cotton lace and applied by hand on the sachets
Trebuie sa stiti ca broderia cea alba, frumoasa, din bumbac este de fapt decupata dintr-o dantela veche si este aplicata de mana pe saculeti

Do you like them? You should feel the smell...
Va plac? Sa simtiti cat sunt de parfumati....

Hugs, Cristina

I'm joining the party :    Ma alatur petrecerii :

  1. Beautiful! I grow lavender and was just thinking about making some sachets. Your idea of stitching the lace piece on the bag is very clever!

  2. Thank you Lauren! I don't have a garden and I tried so many times to grow lavender in flowerpots but never got the right way...you should use yours for so many projects! Hugs, Cristina

  3. Good Morning Cristina, I love the smell of lavender and the little lavender bags you have made are lovely.
    I love bright colours so it makes a nice change to see a brightly coloured lavender bag because normally they are white linen.
    I noticed you mentioned that you had tried to grow lavender in flowerpots... lavender will grow in flowerpots as long as they have a lot of warmth and sunshine and not too much water.
    Cristina, I have enjoyed my visit and I have become a new follower. I look forward to reading many more of your posts.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! when you have the time as you will be most welcome.
    Best Wishes to you from England,

    1. Thanks! I had once a lavender flowerpot outside my window, to the south, with enough sun and warmth, but I noticed I had to wet it daily or she get dried. I missed two days from home and I found her dead...Anyway, I'm still trying.

  4. These are just precious....what a great job.
