Starch the bottom section if desired, arranging the petals to suit. Spread two sections of cotton batting, cut slightly smaller than the flower center, with powdered sachet and fit inside of the flower center. It should be a tight fit so that the sachet does not sift out. Sew the two crochet sections together, attaching at the same time a piece of narrow ribbon for stem – approximately four inches long and folded in half for the stem. Fasten a tiny bow to resemble leaves.

Make three petals for each rosebud sachet.

Assemble: Starch the petals, and curl the two outer edges while damp. Cut a circle of satin approximately 3 inches in diameter. Cut a wedge out of it, and hem these two edges together (right sides together). Run a gathering stitch along the outer edge, pull up slightly. Stuff this with cotton sprinkled with powdered sachet, and draw up tight. Arrange the crocheted petals around this and tack in place. Cut, with pinking shears, another circle of green 1-inch diameter and sew to the bottom. Sew a piece of narrow ribbon for a stem (about 4 inches long, folded, and affix a bow).
