linen and wool door hanger sachets How do your ideas come together?

I started this one wanting to make some lavender sachets. I had some linen & felted wool sweaters near my worktable (that I didn’t get around to using for ornaments in December, time to clean!) so I cut a few hearts out with the Sizzix machine that I hadn’t put away yet from packaging (definitely seeing a trend here in the ‘needing to clean up’ department). And that was it. I was stuck. So, I began taking out bits and pieces I had stashed – ribbons, crochet flowers, and some beads:

I started free-motion embroidery on a few, then embellished with hand-stitching. Filled with lavender and a hanger – and they were done. 

I think these are cute for this time of year, and for all year round, because "Love isn’t just for Valentine’s Day".
