Let me show you how to crochet a Sunflower sachet. It is really easy. Just a little bit of crochet is needed. Use your favorite scent. Combine it with a little bit of polyfil stuffing. Put the scented stuffing in the amigurumi sunflower. Toss them in your drawer. Hang them in your closet with your clothing. Toss them in the trunk of your car. I was told the little scented pumpkins are great to put in the cup holder of your car. It looks cute and makes the car smell good. The free crochet pattern is below, or purchase the ad free pdf at ETSY or RAVELRY.

How do you add scent to the sunflower sachets?
My favorite method is wax melts that have been chopped up. Add them to the polyfil that I use to stuff the sunflowers with. I have had others suggest herbs. Lavender was the most popular. A nice smelling potpourri would be divine. There is a photo tutorial below in the crochet pattern on how I add scent to this crocheted Sunflower sachet.
The details on how to make a sunflower sachet are below.
But first I must tell you about the other Sunflower designs I have created. There is a sunflower towel topper. The towel toppers are pretty and will add a bit of sunshine to your kitchen or bath. There is also a Sunflower Dishcloth, cute Sunflower Coasters, and a Sunflower Hot Pad. All of these items can be found as a free crochet pattern here on this blog, or purchase the ad free bundle.

A little bit of polyfil. Your favorite wax melt. I am using “Autumn Wreath” by Yankee Candle. You can use lavender, potpourri, or scented oils. A sweet lady suggested catnip for the kitties. I think that’s a great idea!

Sunflower Petals Sunflower Sachet:
You will crochet both centers together, leaving a hole so that you can stuff the sunflower with the polyfil and wax melts. Place the centers wrong sides together. Use the working yarn to crochet the centers together, inserting the hook under the top two loops. Follow the pattern below to make the flower petals.
1. Start by placing the centers together, wrong sides facing each other.
2. Line up the edges of the centers, so that they line up, stitch for stitch. Use a few pins can help you, if needed.
3. Start by taking one slip st through both centers. Continue to make the flower petals, following the pattern below. Remember to leave an opening.
*ch6, slp st in 3rd ch from hook; ch3,; slp st in nxt “set of stitches” going through both centers; *repeat between * * 2/3 the way around the sunflower centers. Do not end off. There will be a little pocket in the sachet. Follow the steps in the photo tutorial below. Then proceed to finish crocheting the sunflower petals completely around the sachet. Closing up the hole, encasing the polyfil and wax melts.
