Steps for Making Lavender Sachets
Try crafting these simple sachets and filling them with dried lavender.
Benefits of Lavender
Lavender has many healing properties. It repels moths and mosquitoes and has been used as a sleep aid when placed near a pillow.
Grow Your Own
There are many varieties of lavender that can be grown in your garden.
Cut the Fabric
To make one sachet, measure and cut two 6 inch squares of fabric. Cut two 6-inch long pieces of lace trim.
Sew the Sachet
Sew one piece of lace trim across the top of each fabric piece. Place the fabric on top of each other aligning the lace together with the good sides of the fabric facing in. Sew along the three edges of the fabric, leaving the lace side completely open.
Right Side Out
Turn the bag right side out. The open side with the lacing will be where you fill the bags.
Fill the sachet approximately half way with dried lavender buds.
With some gardening twine, tie them off. When the scent wears off, you can replace the lavender by simply untying the bag or you can add a few drops of lavender essential oil to refresh the buds.
