How to Make a Denim Sachet

Begin by deciding how large you want your heart to be, then cut a piece of denim from a pair of blue jeans that is slightly larger than that. Then, lay a heart-shaped item (such as a box or cookie cutter) on top of the denim and trace around it. If you want it that exact size, then trace about ½" wider around the outside.

Repeat this by cutting a second heart of the same size then stack them so that the outsides are facing each other, and both sides are the interior of the denim.

Now, sew around the outside edge of the heart leaving a ½" to 1" opening on one side.

Turn the heart inside out, then carefully stuff the inside with the cotton batting or cotton balls. If you want to add essential oils to the inside, now is the time to add to the cotton interior.

Then, sew the opening closed.

Now, choose some adornments to go on the outside and attach a chain or charm on one side.

Then add a button on the top and bottom of the chain.

And attach a few buttons in a cluster on the opposite side.

Add a "handle" by cutting a piece of ribbon and folding it into a loop then gluing it to the top of the heart where it dips downward.
