- Sew the printed fabric onto the cotton square
- Cut out a strip of iron on vinyl
- Following the instructions, press the vinyl onto the printed side of the coaster

Velvet Glasses Pouch
Not everyone that wears glasses has to keep their glasses on all the time. This simple pouch will give you a way to carry your glasses safely and stylishly.
Take your glasses and hold them against a strip of 50mm velvet ribbon.
Measure the velvet to see how much room you need for your glasses.
Cut your strip at a length that is 1/2 inch longer than the length of the velvet.
Take a second strip of velvet, and cut it so that it is three inches longer than the initial strip.
Place the strips together so that the velvet is on the inside.
Stitch the two strips together, and then turn them inside out.
From there, you can start using your pouch to hold your glasses.
Sachets can help to improve the smell of your clothing and they can also help you to keep moths out of your drawers. To make your own sachet, you will need at least two 5 inch fabric squares.
- Sew the two squares together with a 1/2-inch seam allowance.
- You should leave a 1 1/2-inch opening at the bottom of the square.
- Once the squares have been sewn together, you can fill them with a scented filling.
- If your goal is to repel moths, lavender buds are an excellent choice.
- Aromatic cedar can also help to keep moths away.
