We inadvertently omitted the finishing instructions for the Lavender Sachets. The following text corrects the omission.

Instructions

Cross stitch with 2 strands of floss over 2 linen threads. Choose the letters you need from the sampler on page 79.

Trim away the excess linen from the stitched design on all 4 sides. The finished sizes of each sachet are noted with their individual pictures.
Add 1/2″ to the measurements to allow for a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Cut the fabric backing the same measurement as the linen.

Cut 2 pieces of fusible interfacing the same measurement as the linen.
Iron one piece onto the reverse side of the backing and the other to the reverse side the linen.

Refer to the pictures and sew the trim and buttons in place.

Sew the linen front to the fabric backing, right sides together. Use 1/4″ seam allowance. Leave a small opening on the bottom seam for turning.

Turn and stuff with crushed walnut shells. Add 2 teaspoons of dried lavender flowers. Blind stitch the opening closed.
