Another pillow project this week! These pillows are much smaller than the one I made last week, and they're filled with fragrant pine balsam. I've made pine sachets on my blog before (in fact, there's another Christmas-themed one coming up in a few weeks), but I think these are the tiniest. They're easy to stitch, and they make great little last-minute gifts.
You can make your tiny pillows out of any fabrics you have in your stash, but I think this print fabric is perfect. It's Summer Camp Blanket in gold by Mark Cesarik. For the pillow backs I used wool-blend felt in gold and crimson. I really like the combination of colors and textures.
For each sachet, I cut one 3-inch square from the print and another from the felt. I pinned the pieces together, right sides facing (although there really is no wrong side to the felt) and sewed the edges together with 1/4-inch seam, leaving an opening for turning.
To finish the pillow, I turned it right side out, filled it with pine balsam, and whip-stitched the opening closed. That's it! These tiny pine pillows take just minutes to make, but I think they have a charming, handmade look. They smell great too.
