Vintage Hanky Sachet Tutorial

I've been making these sachets for a couple of years now. Not too many ladies use pretty hankies any more,  preferring the cleanliness of a throw away tissue. But I love the charm of these dainty linens and decided to repurpose them into lovely lavender filled sachets.They are a favorite of many of  the customers in my antique store so I thought I'd share with you how I make them.


I find that a small to medium sized handkerchief  works best. Iron it smooth.
 Fold over two opposite corners so they overlap slightly, roughly into thirds. Press.
 Fold up the bottom corner and press, then fold up the bottom again 1/3 of the way. Press.
 Now you have an envelope shaped packet.
 Sometimes I stitch the sides closed, but even easier is to insert a strip of "Stitch Witchery" along each side and press and fuse the sides together. That way there are no stitches showing.
I buy French lavender buds from a wholesale source.  they have such a lovely soothing fragrance!
I make a separate pouch out of muslin the same size as my envelope , fill it with the lavender and insert it into the hankie envelope. This keeps the lavender from spilling out.
Lastly, I fold the top down and sew it closed with a pretty button or ribbon.  








These make lovely gifts for bridesmaids, housewarming, etc. Be sure to make one or two for yourself!
If interested I sell them for $8 each. Just email me at chateau.interiors@gmail.com.

  5. Good Afternoon Karee, I love handkerchiefs and funnily enough, I wrote about my love of them on Sunday.
    This is such a lovely idea.
    Years ago, I found a vintage silk handkerchief holder, I had it for a number of years, but slowly over time it fell apart and looking at your handkerchief holders it reminded me of mine. I shall certainly be making these as I know a few friends who would love them.
    I have enjoyed my visit and I have become a new follower. I look forward to getting to know you. 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.
    Sending you best wishes from England.
