This post is a tutorial on how to make these little sachets to preserve the heavenly smell of lavender.

Material:

  • Transparent white fabric: tulle, gauze, etc.
  • White sewing thread
  • Color sewing thread to decorate the sachet, if you wish
  • Lavender

Instructions:

Cut two 10.2 cm / 4” squares in your fabric. Place the squares back to back and keep into place with pins.

Sew all around with a straight stitch and a white thread, at a distance of 1.3 cm / 1/2” from the edges, leaving a 3.8 cm / 1 1/2” gap.

Insert lavender inside the sachet. Push the lavender to the side farthest from the gap and sew a straight line to close the gap.

Sew over the straight stitch with a decorative stitch, using white or color thread. Push the lavender away from the stitching line to avoid stitching through the flowers.
