Sachet or Gift Card Holder
Designer Mistie Bush
This Sachet or Gift Card Holder Project is a Community Affair, the BFL (Blue Face Luster) fiber by Fiber Obsessions was hand dyed by Susan Fricks, owner of Yarnorama, Paige, Texas. The fiber colorway is Fruit Punch, a limited edition. Gracie Bush of American Crochet, handspun the fiber and made it a 2 ply of 31 yards. I took her yarn and designed and crocheted her a Sachet or Gift Card Holder.
The yarn is easy to work with and has a little stretch to it. It is about the thickness of a sport yarn. The twist in the plying gives it the texture of cording.
