Something New

blue daisy sachet pocket

Due to the recent technology changes interrupting my transcription career, I've been working on sales efforts in my home embroidery studio, creating new items for my calicodaisy etsy shop, and thinking on some pattern ideas to hopefully market through the shop. It would be nice to create something just once and be able to multiply sales by selling the pattern over and over!

While making tea wallets these last couple of months, I sort of morphed the idea into business card wallets. They are so darling; I could just make dozens. Look at this kitchy pink mushroom wallet. Please check them out in my shop.

The other day, I was cleaning out a closet and found a rumpled envelope sachet that had lost its scent and was torn a bit leaking out the stuff inside. A light bulb went off, and I imagined a little hanging pocket for that type of sachet. Right away, I went downstairs and made a few prototypes until I created what I was looking for. It's a great solution for what to do with these sachets. The sachets are so affordable, often just a dollar or so, but what to do with just a paper envelope? They packaging is pretty, but you can't just lay it out on furniture for fear of ruining the furniture or of little ones or pets getting into them. So, a Pretty Sachet Pocket is created! One can hang them from a decorative hook or a doorknob. Perfect for nurseries, too, right above the changing station.

The sachet pockets and business card wallets below are in my shop now as well.
