Vintage embroidered linens are often stained or moth-eaten over time...and yet you can't bear to toss them!

Fold over two opposite corners so they overlap slightly roughly into thirds Fold up the bottom corner and press then fold up the bottom again 1/3 of the way Sometimes I stitch the sides closed but even easier is to insert a strip of "Stitch Witchery" along each side and press and fuse the sides together That way there are no stitches showing I buy French lavender buds from a wholesale source I make a separate pouch out of muslin the same size as my envelope
