So I made these for a swap partner...



They were supposed to be hotpads, where you rest a pot on them to keep from burning the counter, and they give off a yummy scent. Well, they came out so cute and incredibly yummy smelling, my partner is using them in her drawers to scent her room and clothes!

I used a vintage fabric for the middle, a vintage print for the border, and then filled it with two layers of toweling, and then about 1/4 cup of whole spices: broken cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, whole cardamom seeds taken out of their husk, oh, and ground ginger because I had no whole ginger pieces. Pinned the layers together with a bit of embroidery thread, and tada...a scented sachet that perfumes a whole entire room with the most delicious smell!

I really like these!  I have a few hotpads around the house, they definitely come in handy but I never thought to fill them with spices or oils to scent them...Great idea!  I love the way they look too...your circle cutting skills are unbelievable!

Heh, thanks. Tongue It was actually more the luck of the fabric...it has a lot of body, so when I just lay a plate on top of it to cut out, it didn't shift or warp any, and came out basically how it was supposed to. Cheesy
