A Victorian boudoir sachet, this dainty, scented bag may be used to keep a devotional prayer ring in your thoughts.
Lavender, cord-edge silk satin ribbon 1 ¾ wide x 10 inches long
Two pieces narrow ribbon in violet shades for tying
Three skeins silk in shades of violet
Three skeins silk in shades of olives green
Wrong sides together, fold the silk ribbon piece in half and mark the fold-line. Copy the violet design onto the silk, placing it where you wish it to be, Embroider the wild violets.
The ribbon is folded together (wrong sides) but not turned in at the edge, being simply overcast with a thread of silk o match.
Finish ends of threads. Remove markings.
The ends of the ribbon at the top of the bag are fringed.
Lightly fill bag with cotton on which powder with the perfume of the violet has been sprinkled. An inexpensive and useful article.
“Confident, the flower delivers its treasure to all
In order to better breathe it, we bow while passing;
We are far already, but the divine odor
Spreads over our steps and perfumes us still”
