Shabby Cottage Sachet Pillows - All the Pretty Little Details

All the pretty little details...vintage hankies, doilies & buttons

I Love Sewing with Vintage Handkerchiefs, Doilies & Buttons...

I love to sew with vintage textiles, fabrics, bits & bobs--adding them to new fabrics gives a sewing project cottage charm. All these pretty, little vintage things are what make a little pillow or a simple sachet beautiful. These wonderful old things give us so much inspiration...

Shabby Cottage Sachet Pillow by The Joyful Home 

I sewed this Shabby Cottage Sachet Pillow with a vintage hankie, buttons and doilies. The fabrics & crochet lace trim are newer. The little mini lavender sachet is button-tufted with a vintage button and tucks into the pillow. The lining and filling inside are also scented. The pillow has a zipper for accessing the little sachet.

This sweet pillow is fully lined, with a zippered slipcover. Lining has lace ties for easy opening & removal of the mini lavender sachet. I sewed on a little lace pull tab on the I always say "It's all in the pretty little details."
