Our newest collection in sachets is our "Vintage Style Hat Collection". Unique and one of a kind lavender sachet is this charming vintage styled childs bonnet. (More in our "Mommy Shoppe).

Crafted from a wonderful vintage feedsack fabric, a pretty pinky coral color floral print on a white background, is this little bonnet. The brim is trimmed in a white ruffled organza lace. Separating the brim from the hat is a beautiful lace embellished with tiny white pearls. Where the hat would tie, we have embellished it with organza and satin ribbons and an organza ribbon rose.

It has been filled to the brim with the most wonderful fragrant French lavender buds. Occassionally squeeze the buds to heighten the scent and the scent will last for several years.

A darling little sachet, and the second of 4 styles. Two others will be making their debut soon.

Measures: 4 1/2"L x 5"W.

Special request are always welcomed.

Please ask any questions before purchasing.

A Bit Of Info on Feedsacks:

Vintage feedsacks were originally used for flour, sugar, coffee, tea, beans, chicken feed, grains, rice, and even dog food, etc, back in the 1800's up to 1960's. Back in those days women requested prettier bags for their food staples and manufacturers complied, which boosted their sales of the bags with beautiful colorful printed fabrics for women to tote their consumable goods in. Soon women began making clothing from them and using the fabric in quilts. In 1942 an estimated three million Americans were wearing garments made from printed feedsack cloth. This was also one of the first items used for pillowcase dresses, called feedsack dresses. When times were tough after the civil war, they began using their pillowcases too. Today feedsack cloth is a highly sought after collectible fabric. A bit of history for ya all. :) One of my passions! If you would like to learn more, do a google search on "feedsacks". It has a very large history.

A Bit of Info on Lavender:

Lavender is commonly used by placing it among stored items of clothing to give a fresh fragrance and as a deterrent to moths. Lavender has been extensively used in herbalism. An infusion of lavender is claimed to soothe and heal insect bites. Bunches of lavender are also said to ward off insects like keeping away flies and mosquitoes, who do not like the scent. If applied to the temples, lavender oil is said to soothe headaches. Lavender is frequently used as an aid to sleep and relaxation. Seeds and flowers of the plant are added to pillows, and an infusion of three flowerheads added to a cup of boiling water are recommended as a soothing and relaxing bedtime drink. Lavender oil (or extract of Lavender) is claimed to heal acne when used diluted 1:10 with water, rosewater, or witch hazel, it is also used in the treatment of skin burns and inflammatory conditions. There is scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of some of these remedies, especially the anti-inflammatory effects, but they should be used with caution since lavender oil can also be a powerful allergen.

According to a 4 July 2006 article in the Washington Post, "A preliminary finding presented at the Endocrine Society's conference, suggests that shampoos, soaps and body lotions containing lavender may cause hormonal imbalances and breast growth in young boys".
