This pattern is a vintage pattern and may use vintage terms. Although this pattern is from a print publication it has not been recently tested.
Sachet is made of two heart-shaped pieces, joined together with the ribbon.

2nd row: In ch-2 sp of shell make 3 d c, ch 2 and 3 d c (shell over shell). Ch 1, skip 3 ch, s c in next ch, s c in each s c across (always pick up only the back loop of each s c throughout s c-section). Ch 4, skip 2 d c of ring, in next d c make a shell. Ch 1, turn. 3rd and 4th rows: Shell over shell, ch 4, skip 3 ch, s c in next ch, s c in each s c across, s c in 1st ch of next ch-4, ch 1, shell over shell. Ch 4, turn.

Repeat the 10th row until there are 16 shells on each side. Ch 4, sl st between last 2 s c of previous row. Fasten off. Sew together tips of last shells, with neat over-and-river stitches.
With second color make another piece same as this. Place one piece on top of the other. Pass ribbon through loops of both pieces in such a way as to have only the loops of the contrasting color appear on each side. Tie ribbon in a bow, and trim ends (see illustration). Stuff solid part with cotton, sprinkling sachet powder between layers of cotton, and sew top neatly.
