Turn old bras into potpourri sachets

Bra sachetAbel of ParentWonder has sent in many pointers over the last few months, but this one just had to go front and center: how to turn old bras into potpourri holders. Most of us moms (especially those who are nursing or have nursed) have at least one or two bras sitting around that will never fit again. Never. So why not put them to good use? Perhaps they have a future in Christmas tree ornaments as well?

Oh lord. Sorry. I'd rather Freecycle my bras.

Of course, with my luck, someone will give me one of those for Christmas.


4 months pregnant w/ #2 and I just had to buy a size G today!!!!

I can't wait to be back to my normally large but not so insanely large size. May have to revisit this hack then.

;-) ;-) Just a bit of DIY humor there. Can you imagine festooning your Christmas tree with hacked-up bras?

Oh, I laughed, and then snorted a little bit, then laughed some more.

That is fabulously tacky.

Yes because I want to be reminded of my perkier years on a daily basis and I want my clothes to smell like potpourri! Perfect!

If the cups of ANY of my bras were that small and dainty, MAYBE. But alas, that's not the case.

I bet you can do that with an OLD JOCK STRAP TOO!
Wouldn't that be fun? you could have some fun and put them up on your car rear view mirror for a fresh scent and maybe some fresh looks too!

That is hysterical.

Wow. It's one thing to come up with a *good* idea in your spare time, but this is something else altogether.
