April 2023 – Love Sachet –

This is an EGA Facebook project from last year. Teresa will have copies of the pattern at the March and April meetings to give out, as well as some fabric for the project. The fabric was a donation to the Chapter. So you just need to provide the threads for the piece. The pattern calls for silk, but Teresa went with DMC for it. You need 5 red to pink flosses and 2 green. This is the same piece Sue Knepley displayed at Show & Share in February.
