Vintage Crochet Sachet

It's been one of those crazy hectic days where everything takes 10 times longer than you think it will so I had to do something fast and easy for White Wednesday.

I have this pretty little vintage crochet sachet and I wanted someplace nice to display it. I found a cheap plastic frame at a thrift store, painted it white and sanded it a little to expose the old gold color. Then I covered the cardboard with a scrap of green rosebud fabric and attached the sachet.

There is still a bit of fragrance from the little cloth sachet inside, surprising after all of these years. Isn't it fun to collect what women made years ago! I've crocheted a little bit using this fine thread, it's not hard but it takes time, good light and good eyes.

I picked up the sachet in my friends Etsy shop a while back.

The plastic frame before.

Thanks for stopping by!
