Handmade Scented Satchets (Windsor Terrace)
Taught by Jessie Katz
Jessie has been crafting & creating as long as she can remember. Growing up her favorite toy was the “craft bucket” in her closet. This giant bucket was filled with a mixture of purchased and hand-me-down supplies, and she loved seeing what she could create with these leftovers. Jessie studied graphic design and art history at The Hartford Art School, and now works as a freelance graphic designer specializing in hand lettering & event stationery. In her free time Jessie likes experimenting with new projects and writing craft tutorials for her blog, CraftyWhatnot.com.
No class on Feb 22nd!
You’ll learn a little bit of everything in this class – stenciling, hand sewing, and aromatherapy.
We’ll talk a little bit about what scents are good for motivation, romance, and relaxation & stress relief. Many of these (like lavender) serve double duty – also preventing pests – which is why scented sachets are perfect to keep clothes fresh in closets and drawers!
Incorporating these fragrances, you’ll learn a few easy stitches to hand sew a scented sachet, personalized with your stenciled word or phrase. By the end of class you’ll have one or two sachets, plus the knowledge to continue making more at home! All supplies are provided, but if you have your own essential oils or dried herbs you’d like to incorporate, feel free to bring those along.
