So recently, I was looking for a fun little gift to make for my friends for their birthdays. Nothing over the top, just a sweet little gift that says “I’m happy were friends!”
I decided on…
Organic Lavender Sachets
These sachets turned out great and now I have more friends and family wanted them too!
Purpose: You want to put these sachets anywhere you would like to smell a hint of lavender. You can put them in your dresser, closet, shoe cabinet, under the garbage bag, car, sports bags… you name it! It will smell great!
Light Weight Fabric (I used some cool vintage fabric)
Lavender (I used Starwest Botanicals Extra organic lavender flowers) You might be able to find it on Amazon for less?
Pinking Scissors (or you can sew with right sides together and flip outside-in, hem and sew shut)
Sewing machine and thread
Step 1: Cut your fabric squares to the size you want using regular scissors, not the pinking. I did a 4.5 inch X4.5 inch square. To save on time, I first made a cardstock paper pattern so that I could easily trace a bunch at a time.
Step 2: Sew two pieces of your fabric squares together with back sides together at a 1/4 to1/2 inch inseam. Only sewing 3 sides.
Step 3: Fill you fabric with lavender
Step 4: Sew it shut.
Step 5: Cut around the edges with pinking scissors. This will keep it from fraying.
Here’s are few more I made with modern fabric.
