Step 1: Gather stamp supplies and a scrap of muslin (approx 3 1/2 X 3 inches), Fray all four edges. I used coffee dyed muslin for the ditty label then stamped the sweet annie image with light green in the background. I stamped a darker green then lightly with black ink in the foreground. I stamped the words "Sweet Annie" using sepia ink. Sorry forgot to take pics of each stamped procedure. You may use what ever stamps that you have on hand or hand stitch something.
Here's the finished label....I just love how olde and prim it came out!! I've had this evergreen stamp for many years and never used it, until today. I think it's supposed to be a fern but in my mind it looks like sweet annie....don't you think? (found it at Joann's, I believe). Sorry about the slight blurriness, using that macro feature sometimes doesn't work for me even though it supposed to be for very close up pics...hmmm.
Step 2: Cut out a piece of fabric (approx 5x7 inch, with the fold on the bottom). Turn right sides together and sew each side with a straight stitch. I did not coffee dye the bag but you may. I have other scents coming from the stamped label and the cinnamon rosehips (later in the tut).
You can make a boxed bottom for sitting, or an angled bottom by stitching the bottom corners on the diagonal then clipping them. I prefer the angled look for this project. See the pics below. Now fold the top hem over twice (approx 1/2 inch each time) then stitch close to the edge, leaving a small 1/4 to 1/2 inch opening on one side to snake a 20 inch piece of jute through. Tie the jute to a small safety pin to get it through the hem. Turn right side out. Make a knot on each end of the jute so it doesn't fray. You may leave the jute outside of the bag (for hanging) or tuck it inside if desired, for a sitting piece.
Position your newly stamped label where desired. Try not to position the label on the top hem though if you want to gather it up a bit.
Now stitch around your newly stamped label with 3 ply floss of your color choice, with a running stitch. You do not have to be exactly straight with this stitch...afterall it is a prim piece!
Next, I baked cinnamon scent rosehips and placed them in a small snack size lunch bag and added them to the bottom (about 1/2 cup or less). I left the bag open for maximum scent. You can add whatever you have on hand to weight the bottom down....rice, fishtank pebbles or little stones from the craft store or from around your house.
