Pot Pourri bag

This pot pourri bag is made from scraps of sheer curtain (we had to shorten the curtains when we had our rabbit Anya, as she would chew the edges that so elegantly puddled on the floor) and pot pourri from a second hand shop. The tag is recycled from a decorative cardboard box. The yellow string is from a curtain tie that Anya had chewed to pieces. You can see more of my pot pourri bags here and here.

I'm going to make several more of these as I have plenty of the right materials. I'm thinking of setting up an Etsy or Folksy (UK equivalent of Etsy) shop to sell things like this. What do you think?

Yes, do it. A great part of the fun is in the bags' stories, like this one.

It sounds like Anya provided you with lots of extra supplies to make such lovely things!

Dear Juliet, reading your latest post the art of "making", dealing with substances, materials, textures glittered together with these lines from S.Heaney's "Squarings" which have today been staying in my mind:

Sink every impulse like a bolt. Secure
the Bastion of sensation. Do not waver
Into language. Do not waver in it.

I have posted a poem in my blog I felt could be a friend of Dave King's "Tunnels of the Mind."
Best, Davide

Folksy and Etsy are such a reasonable way to test the market, I say yes, go forth and display your wares.

That is delightful! Bet you would make a fortune selling those :)
