Idea for using scrap foundation fabric...mothproof too...

Hello~! I always have quite a bit of scrap linen and monks cloth. I can only hook so many So...I thought of a way to use it up and help repel the moths at the same time......Sachets! I used a lil' penny posy design, but the sky is the limit on design. I filled mine with Cedar Chips, but you can also use Lavender, Cloves, Thyme, or Cinnamon. If you think of any other natural repellents, please do share in the comment section.

I thought the loose weave would let the scent out and they could be cute at the same I also have some loosely woven wool that is not large enough for a pillow and too loose to cut into strips, so I may try it next.

I simply stitched them together on my sewing machine, but I am sure there are other ways. I used a large needle to feed the dyed jute through the tops.

If you have any questions, or more ideas.....let me know...Happy Hooking!!!
