I really hope you’ll give these a try. They are so easy! I promise! Let’s get started:
Gather all your supplies: 2 x 5.5 ” pieces of fabric, 2 oz. of organic lavender seeds (I purchased mine on Amazon for $15.99/pound), little spoon to scoop seeds, 8 ” ribbon, sewing machine with matching thread, hand sewing needle and more thread, iron (optional), pinking shears (optional), disappearing ink marker and a piece of paper to make your shape of choice.
- Make a heart or any other shape with paper – that’s your pattern! (Mine measured 5” across.)
- Trace your shape onto fabric.
4. Pin right sides together. TIP: This is where I inserted an 8” ribbon into the heart sandwich. This will later make your loop!
7. Fill the heart with lavender seeds (for mine I used about 2 ounces.) You are almost done!! 🙂
There you have it! Keep, give, trade, or simply admire your handmade sachet! I made some for Stella’s guests this Sunday, saved some to send overseas as Christmas gifts, and slipped some in the linen drawers to repel moths.
P.S. I love giving gifts that are hand-made, pretty, useful & in this case even come with a list of benefits. Read about the benefits of lavender here.
