Hi my name is Naja and I come to Craftster all the time for inspiration and ideas, (you guys are awesome) but this is my first post.

We are saving for our first home and so I made almost all of the Christmas gifts this year. I made these for the women in my life.

I found this pattern http://www.spoolsewing.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/birdpattern1-1.pdf  for a bird softie. I added ribbon on the top and stuffed them half with lavender and half with fiber-fill (or whatever its called).

I called them Love Bird Sachets and put two in a clear bag with cut up brown paper shopping bags for nests. With the ribbon loop you could hang them in your closet or put them in your undie drawer.

They were a big hit and now that Christmas is over I am still making them. They are so fun and I get four birds out of one fat quarter. They also take minutes to construct. I still have pieces cut from different fabrics so that I can quickly pin and sew for when I need that something-got-accomplished feeling.  

Anyway thanks for taking a look and enjoy,
Naja
