Crochet Sachet

Crochet Sachet

Next in the “Come On, Spring!” series is a really quick and easy little crochet sachet. I know these aren’t used as much as when I was young-er, but retro seems to be “in” these days. So here’s my take on something old is new again. These are just two ideas. Use your imagination to come up with your own creation.

Microwaveable Projects

In my tutorials for the potato cooker and the bowl potholder, I suggested using Warm Tater batting. I have learned the Warm Company no longer makes this product. You can see the article here.
