Heart Sachets for Valentine's Day

I've enjoyed making these cute little muslin hearts so much and I wanted to share the tutorial with you today. I've also added some to the Homeroad Etsy Shop so you can grab some too!

These hearts are an easy project and look great in a basket or a bowl for Valentine's Day or just tucked into a drawer for the amazing scent.

In the past I made these lavender heart sachets that were filled with lavender and very popular at the craft fairs. 

The hearts I made are once again made in my style,  with neutral muslin

I love the neutral look, it's so calming and serene. 

The fabric I used came from an old, faded Ikea curtain panel I saved from years ago.

All I basically did was to use pinking shear scissors and cut out hearts from an old faded muslin fabric I had in my collection.

I used fabric hot glue to attach the front heart to the back leaving a small opening to stuff the hearts. 

This fabric hot glue is amazing on fabric.

I used Poly-fil to fill the hearts and added a cotton ball with DoTerra Patchouli essential oils on it to scent the hearts. 

You can use your favorite essential oil scent to make your drawers or room smell amazing.

Next, I closed the opening of the heart with the hot glue and added a neutral button to the center of the heart.

Before I knew it I had 10 of them finished and added them to the Homeroad Etsy Shop with free shipping. 

As you can see, the faded fabric gave me hearts in different shades of neutral.

They make great gifts!

They are easy to make and look great in sets of 3 scattered in bowls and baskets around the house to decorate for Valentine's Day.
