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.

  1. Make a heart or any other shape with paper – that’s your pattern! (Mine measured 5” across.)
  2. 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!

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

Happy sewing!
