A sachet is simply potpourri in a fabric container, such as a small bag or pillow. Sachets can be made from almost any material. Fabrics that breathe well are best, so that the scent of the sachet can escape into the air. Good fabrics to use are cotton, linen, silk,
One very simple idea is to buy old lace handkerchieFlowers at garage sales or flea markets. Put a few spoonfuls of your potpourri mixture into the center of the handkerchief, draw up the ends, and tie with a ribbon to make a small pouch.
Another simple sachet can be made using any old fabric. Cut a small rectangular strip about 4" x 11". Fold in half (wrong side out) and stitch up both sides. Turn inside out. (If you don't sew, you can use fabric glue instead!) Spoon in potpourri mixture, filling pouch about 1/2 way.
Gather at the top of the mixture and tie with a ribbon.
