Color wheel lavender sachet


lavender sachet, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

For my friend, Scarlett. I hope this sachet will keep her clothes fresh and slightly fragrant! In June I took a soy wax resist, cloth dying class from Melanie Testa. We started with primary colors....One group of warm primaries, another of cool color primaries. She encouraged us to make a color wheel of a set of primaries to guide us with our mixing. I really loved the color wheel "sample" so I brought it home with the rest of my dyed cloth. Here it is with a little embroidery and lace embellishments filled with harvested lavender from my garden sent to my friend in Boston. I think it will arrive in her mail today. Shh, she doesn't know it's coming.
