.... but in a good way!

It is Dan's grandmother's birthday. She is a very sweet lady who lives in a smallish apartment and is VERY conscious of not getting into a clutter.

So I thought I'd make her some pot-pouri bags to make her undies smell pretty!!

Made using Little Folks voiles with a solid pink voile for the lining.

The contents is the dried remainders of my birthday roses with a little essential oil for extra smelliness!!

After the controversy of my last post, it's a relief to get back to a safer topic.

Happy birthday Nan!!

Gorgeous little bags, Andi and I like the idea of using voile. I have spent about an hour browsing through items on your Blog - past Posts and Comments and lot of other Sites, too - your Blog is just so interesting! My thoughts on the 'controversy' - if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all!

What a perfect and meaningful gift at the same time, such pretty fabrics. Now I wonder why I don't have nice smellies in my drawer, might have to remedy that.

What a great use of that wonderful fabric!

Sorry bout the hassle on the last post. I work in a fabric store, and teach at two. I buy a lot there and ALSO purchase online when it fits my budget. I guess I'd consider myself a collector, but that's only so I don't have to use the word addict.

Only safer if Nan likes the whiff of roses! I only ay because my Nan has a big bone to pick with anything purporting to smell like gardenia. I found out the hard way.
