A Lady in Waiting - Lavender Sachet by Lynne Moncrieff

With Mother’s Day (not only celebrating Mothers, it could be Mother-in-Law, Grandmother, etc) this month I plan on sharing a few gift ideas.

The first is this lavender sachet with a photo real stamp taking centre stage.


Extras:- lavender, small piece cut from bead trim, iron



Prepare by:-


Cut a piece of Lesley Riley’s TAP slightly larger than your stamp choice.

Cut the Sticky Canvas to required size, allowing for lace border.

Have your iron switched on and have a firm working surface prepared.


Ink up China Doll stamp with Archival Ink. My preference is to use a Speedball brayer to apply the ink, for me it provides the best stamped impression. 

Stamp onto the piece of TAP.

NOTE when transferring the TAP image the weave/texture of the fabric will be evident.  On this project you can see the texture of the canvas however the clarity of the stamp girl is faultless.

At this stage lightly apply colour with watercolour pencils. Inside the package of TAP there are good tips on using watercolours, etc to ensure the best results.

Using the hot iron transfer the TAP image onto the Sticky Canvas.

Completing the lavender sachet:-


Surround the image with lace.

Fill the sachet with lavender. Before closing the top edge tuck a little hanging loop inside.

Finally, embellish the sachet with a piece cut from decorative trim.

Until next week,
