Anyway... I was itching to give it a try... Valentine's day is around the corner... we have a bit of trouble with pantry moths... so here is my Chicken Scratch Valentine Pantry Sachet!! I filled mine with a mixture of cloves, peppercorns, cinnamon & bay leaves (apparently moths find these smells completely unapealing!) - but you could also fill with lavender for your linen cupboard or closet or with a cotton wool ball spritzed with your favourite essential oil.
I did the embroidery first, then using a heart shaped cookie cutter as a template (easy to centre your embroidery in the shape) cut out two hearts. With a sewing machine I straight stitched around the two hearts making sure to sew a length of matching cord at the top of the heart and leaving a gap (to fill with herbs) along the straight edge (I started and stopped in a red check / square so the back stitching and join would not show so much.) Then I filled the heart and machine stitched the gap. Finally I cut along the edge of the material with pinking shears.
I hope you give this a try - it makes me smile everytime I open the pantry!
