Don't Throw it Away

Is your favourite scented candle nearly finished?  :(
Here is an idea to use up that last bit in the bottom of the container - make a scented sachet.
(I have one of those lovely candles from Village Candles (America), pure linen fragrance).

Carefully remove the wax bits from the container, and chop them up finely.
Using two small squares of leftover batting (for that padded look), sew around three sides,  put your wax bits inside, sew shut.
With some fabric scraps, make a cover.
Add a button.

 An easy project to make that costs next to nothing.
 And you get to enjoy your scented candle a while longer!
Happy Stitching,

That looks so very pretty with the materials you have used. I must say I am not really a candle girl but if I am given any that I like I just stick them in my linen or clothing shelves. Nothing better than a whiff of perfume...
