Shoe Freshener bags

I have been busy this morning on another idea I have had.

This is the time of year we are all looking forward to warmer weather, open doors and windows and being able to wear less layers of clothing, well I am anyway! It will be great to put away all those heavy winter clothes and shoes and get out the summer wardrobe.

I was thinking it will be great not to have to wear my boots soon and look forward to packing them away but it would also be nice to have them smelling fresh when they do go away so here is what I have been busy making...... Shoe freshener bags

Pretty little bags,  shaped to fit into your shoes and held together with a cord. They are filled with scented rice and a little toy stuffing and they smell lovely.

These ones are quite small, they measure 4" x 2.5" x 2.5" so these would be a lovely size for slippers or summer shoes, I am off to make some larger ones and I may scent them with lavender although I have quite alot of rice left!

I love them and will be making myself a matching set for all my shoes and some for the shop, I am thinking Mothers day and may make some sets maybe with a scarf hanger and some scented hearts for the wardrobe, what do you think?

  1. Great idea - nice smelling shoes & wardrobes.

    I always love having little sented sachets dotted around the bedroom so your ideas seem perfect to me.
