French Sachets

Last year, while I was laid off, I was out at the thrift stores, and came across a huge lot of clip art books with victorian, french and other advertising images, I must have about 10 of them. 

I never really had much time after got my job to really check them out and make anyhting form htem until today.

Here are just a few pages of some of the really neat copyright free images.

Anyhow, in my excitement, I cut one out and saved the image here.  And I am not very computer savvy either. LOL  
Please feel free to save this image and use in your projects.  I am a sharing kind of folk!

Anyways, I decided to make some sachets with this image...

I decided to use some tea stained muslin I had on hand, I ironed the fabric to the waxy side of freezer paper, cut it to 5x7, and ran it through the printer.  I think these turned out very cute and they will be for sale in my Etsy shop.

The one with the ruffle on the botom is hanging from this shelf I made last year.  I have another one ready to finish soon.  I will be using one of these graphics for it...but that's another day...It will probably take me a month the way I get things done! 

Thank you all for checking in and I really enjoy your comments.  (even if I don't always say so...I am a clam......:)... )
