Keep your clothes sweet for Valentine’s with drawer scenters!

Here’s a cute little present for Valentine’s Day. Why not make this Lovehearts themed drawer scenter to keep your favourite delicates fresh and sweet smelling, ready for Valentine’s Day?

The cute applique is made using your Oekaki Renaissance machine – play with funny messages for the perfect treat for your drawers (and we’re not talking about the furniture!)

 

 

What you’ll need

  • Felt
  • Valentine’s cotton fabric
  • Grosgrain ribbon

Start by cutting discs of felt and using the Oekaki mode on your Oekaki Renaissance machine to embroider your favourite “Love Hearts” messages.

Next prepare your cotton fabric by cutting two pieces, about 3cm wider than your Love Heart discs and twice the height, plus 3cm.

Pin your felt disc to the front side of one piece and stitch narrowly around the felt to secure it in place.

Lay your two rectangles of cotton fabric right sides together and stitch with a narrow seam allowance down three edges, leaving the top edge open. Turn inside out and press. Fold the top raw edge over and stitch down to leave a clean finish.

 

Fill the draw scenter with your favourite scent. Use lavender or pressed flowers, or drop some essential oils onto knitting yarn or fabric scraps before placing in the bag. Tie off with the grosgrain ribbon in a pretty bow. Enjoy keeping your best things sweet!
