Lingerie Sachets

from week ending 7/26/98

Design and Instructions by Diana Trupiano

Scent your lingerie, or other drawers with this quick and easy sachet!


12" square Tulle netting

1/2 - 3/4 cup potpourri beads (these are not oily like regular potpourri, and will not stain your clothing)

1 yard each, of two different colored ribbons (to match, or accent potpourri color)

1 yard String of Pearls, color of your choice

Silk flowers, type and color of your choice (I used roses)

Hot glue gun and sticks


  1. Cut Tulle into a 12" circle.

  2. Lay flat on work surface and place potpourri beads in center. You want about 2" of Tulle left at the top to fan out. Adjust bead amount as needed.

  3. Tie ribbons around top to secure. Tie bows, leaving ribbon tails about 1" longer than bow loops.

  4. Glue pearl loops, plus one or two lengths of straight pearls at base.

  5. Glue flowers in place, as desired.

This sachet is very quick to make. Put one in each of your drawers to softly scent all of your clothes! They make wonderful gift box toppers as well.
