Project

Patterned Sachets

Tie a few sachets for coworkers, or use them individually as stocking stuffers.

Materials

  • Four sachet patterns
  • Printable paper-backed cotton
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Lavender, cedar, or balsam

Steps

  1. Step 1

    In a photo-editing program, draw four 4-inch squares. Import a different pattern into each square. Print squares onto printable paper-backed cotton, following manufacturer's instructions; cut out.

  2. Step 2

    Stack 2 printed squares or 1 blank square and 1 printed square, right sides facing. Sew around all sides, using a 1/4-inch seam allowance and leaving a 1-inch opening on 1 side. Turn pillow right side out. Fill with lavender, cedar, or balsam; stitch closed.

    I make dollhouses and everything for them. This method of printing onto fabric is a tecnique I would like to try on minature linnens and pillows. This method will expand my ability to create beautiful quilts, pillows, bedspreds, and other fabric projects for the whole "miniature Home". Love this!

    I've decided to use fabric paint and stencils. Hopefully they will come out as nice as Martha's!

    I love the print of her fabric. Where can i find them?

    Easier than getting Bubblejetset from dharmatrading.com and then preparing the fabric with the paper-get it from JoAnnes in the Quilting supplies already mounted on paper, treated, and ready to print.

    You can get all manner of design CD in books from the Dover Pictoral Archive series. Check Amazon.com for them.

    Hugs!

    Hi all-
    If you soak cotton (scoured if mercerized) in Bubble jet and let dry, then iron onto wax backed butcher paper cut to printer size, you should be able to print no problem. The bubble jet will fix the dye. Make sure there are no hanging threads or bits of loose fabric to get caught in printer. Works great.

    Hi all - have put fabric previously soaked in 'bubble jet'' and the ironed onto wax backed butcher paper through my colour printer. Bubble jet keeps the dye fast, but when you put paper/fabric sheet thru, trim edges so no chances of snags.
    regards,

    It is a very easy craft. Where can I purcahse the prints shown?

    If you sew a loop of cording into the corner, you can make cedar filled sachets to slip over hangers in the coat closet.

    This is also great for any quilters out there if you want to use up left overs from fat quarters - just skip the printing part!
