Here's a little Filet Sachet that I made for a
For the filet pattern, I turned to one of my favorite books, Crochet for a Beautiful Home. (Pub 1987 Sedgewood Press) They have a couple of complete alphabets and a number of other filet pattern blocks. [I bought the book at a used bookstore and don't know if it is still in print.)

Materials: Cotton #10 thread & #30 thread (I
don't know how much I used of either thread It hardly made a
dent on the spool, so it wasn't much.)
First Part: Make the filet block with size #10 thread and #6 hook. Use whatever filet pattern you have and follow their spacing instructions.Don't fasten off. Instead....
Sew block to around Rnd 1 to right side of one mauve block. Leave the ruffles loops. Put two mauve squares with right sides together. Slide the cork coaster in as a gauge (optional). Sew the squares together, leaving one side open and being careful not to catch the ruffle.
Turn right side out. Slide cork coaster back in (optional) Add a little fiberfill and some paper or pearl sachet. Sew the remaining open end close. Thread ribbon and attach decoration as shown in picture. I found it helpful to take the heart and the corners in place.
