Bee Sachet

Since my thistle motif finished into an ornament, I thought I'd finish this into a sachet instead. It was quite easy and I've left the top open with just a simple press button for closure. That way I can change the fragrance sachets once they expire, instead of ripping off the stitches.

The backing fabric was a VSE gift from Radha and it was perfect for this design. I've embellised the inner lace square with coral Mill Hill beads. For a sparkly effect and because I've stitched white on almost white fabric, the lace pattern wasn't too obvious.
