Making this cushion could not be simpler as it requires no sewing at all, just a safety pin!. The lace is fine enough to allow the rose petal scent to permeate into a clothes drawer or through a pile of pillows on a bed. From time to time a little essential oil or potpourri refreshing perfume will be needed to refresh the petals. Tiny sachets can also be made from circles of the thinnest muslin or by using lace handkerchiefs. Make a small pile of potpourri in the center of the fabric, crushing or tearing some of the larger petals or rose heads. Gather the fabric together and tie securely with a fine ribbon. Small silk or fabric rose-buds or flowers may then be sewn or glued to the neck of the bag. If you are making a present of some fine linen or lingerie, the addition of two or three rose sachets makes more of your gift.
