New in my Etsy shop

I've just added  two hanging pourri sachets to the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop! You can see them here and here.


I made them from differently patterned sections of the same material as the previous one (which I blogged about here) but the buttons and beads that I've added on as decoration are different. They're both filled with dried heather flowers and stems. I love the variety of the patterns in the fabric.

I made invisible seams on the bottom using this tutorial on the Melly and Me blog (scroll down a bit to find the tutorial) - these seams really are invisible and easy to make, though a bit fiddly!




These items are for sale only to UK addresses, as I don't want to get on the wrong side of the law as it refers to international trade of plant parts. (I'm possibly erring on the side of caution here).


As ever, red text contains hyperlinks that take you to other webpages where you can find out more.

Very pretty Juliet. I imagine it smells of the moorland.

Hi Juliet,

The sachet is lovely and made from beautiful fabric. It must smell sweet.
I know NZ customs are very strict and the border control, monitors plants and things like this coming in.

Happy week
hugs

This is lovely. I understand why you can't sell them outside the UK, but that's a shame.
