Crochet Wedding Cake Sachets

                 Cake Sachets- crocheted for charity by Norma Lynn Hood

    This site is absolutely delicious!! Hundreds of sweet delights that are scented with organic lavendar (soooo relaxing) , but can be substituted for other scents such as cocoa , or coffee bean aromas. 

How sweet is that?

Great idea for birthdays , weddings , or tea parties for little girls. They can be centerpieces or place setting holders to great your guests as they arrive and as a keepsake to take with them. 

Just browsing through the gallery of these little crochet confections made my mouth water!  And the best part was no calories! lol

I totally want to make some of these.  Adding to my to-do list right NOW.
