Not to be a squealer but…my munchkin is a criminal…a thief…a pirate!
The adorable little crook plundered most of the lilacs from the building around the corner (with more than a little help from daddy) …and majestically presented them to yours truly…I am so proud!
To commemorate my little villain’s first crime I decided to create a ‘trespassing-treasure’ using a groovy bit of inspiration from Heidi in Lederhosen:
lovely lilac lifter scent sachets…
Create some from your own lil’ scoundrel’s booty in minutes:
First, hang your blooms upside down and let them dry out for at least 2 weeks
once they are completely moisture free & crunchy, snag some funky scraps & coordinating ribbon
remove the dried buds from the stems & set aside
chop out a small piece of fabric
fold right sides facing & stitch together leaving one end open for filling
chop off any excess fabric & turn right side out
fill with the lovely scented buds
fold the raw edges of the open end inside, pop in a loop of ribbon & stitch closed
top-stitch all the way around the edge if desired
et voila! A lovely kidlet crime commemorating memory sachet!
pop ’em over your hangers or simply in a drawer & enjoy the sweet the scent of thievery!
