it's beginnning to look a lot like Christmas

Christmas sachet

I've been sewing like a mad woman and stocking the Primrose Design website with lots of goodies for holiday shopping. I tend to not make many holiday-themed things because, if they don't sell, I'm stuck with them until next year. But I had a cute handkerchief embroidered with poinsettias and holly in my stash and it was just crying out to become something holiday-related. Another hanky with green crocheted edging, some poinsettia fabric, and a red and white button stack were the perfect companions. Voila—a hanky sachet!

Christmas sachet

I've never done a give-away on my blog before but this seems like the perfect opportunity :)

So, leave a comment here before noon on Thursday (that's November 29th) and I'll throw all the names in a hat and pick someone to win this sachet. I'll announce the winner in another post and that person can then send me their mailing address. I'll wrap it up and send it on it's way the next time I go to the post office.

Sound like fun? Well, get writing :)

That is a sweet sachet & it's even sweeter if we get to win it! I've been busy doing my embroidery & making my baby nephew his Christmas stocking (using vintage embroidery patterns, of course), and I've got to make a handmade gift for a dinner party exchange...tis the season to be crafting. :)

The sachet is adorable. You have such great ideas. I inherited a lot of my mother-in-law's vintage material and you inspire me for ways to use it. I would love a chance to win the sachet.

I should have commented on your Thanksgiving post to thank you for the pictures/recipe. That post was very satisfying..mmm mmm. I seldom win chance prizes but I got this picture in my head of that lovely creation in my possession, so why not.
