Cross Stitch Lavender Sachet

I love lavender. My sister in Brazil loves it too.
I am sending her a late birthday gift, and decided to include a lavender sachet.
The pattern is from Rico Designs. I made some changes. It was charted for Anchor, but I found  a conversion chart for DMC online.
Another change I made: A ribbon bow instead of the cross stitched  from the original.
I used lavender satin for back and lower part of the front. I also used some lace and tiny beads to add a little more to this very simple design.
I added lavender buds to the filling. I am sure she will like it. :)  Smells wonderful.
Now, I need to make one for me too!
Thanks for stopping by!
Ana Paula.


  1. I love lavender too. This would be a great idea for a spare room or maybe in the bathroom too. Its gorgeous :-)

  2. It's beautiful! It looks so elegant with the ribbon now. I love it :)

  3. Muito delicado esse grafico, ficou um mimo. Você poderia me passar esse gráfico por email? No meu lavabo tenho um vaso com lavandas artificiais e uma toalhinha bordada com esse grafico iria combinar direitinho. Desde já agradeço a atenção. Bom dia!!!

  4. Lavender is the BEST I love how you finished this lovely stitched design!

  5. Love the cross stitch. I used to do it so many years ago. My daughters have their names and samplers done and I think that was the last time I crossed stitched, so that had to be about 15 years ago. Goodness time flies.
