I love the smell of lavender! Who doesn’t right? It’s so relaxing!
I wanted to buy those pretty sachets they sell at spa’s or fine linen stores for my drawers but the only downside is they can get expensive!
As usual not wanting to spend a lot I decided to make my own. Shocker I know!
I headed down to my local spice store to buy a bag of dried lavender but there are also a lof of great websites you can buy from online as well. Here is a great brand from $11.99 per pound at amazon.com, click here to check it out. I used a half pound to make 6 satchels. Running me less than $2 in lavender per sachet.
Next I hit up Joann Fabric and Craft Store and found some pretty floral linen for $5 a yard, and netting or tool at $3 a yard. I bought a 1/2 yard of each.
Cut off the excess tool.
After you’re finished sewing your fabric pocket you can go in and sew a line an inch in on all four sides, this will give a nice snug fit when you add in your lavender.
Next you want to place your lavender sachet inside your fabric and sew it closed.
