I love lavender smell and it makes me feel good inside. So if you are interested in how to make colorful lavender sachets you have come to the right place. A few months ago I was visiting my sister Anna. She is a big crafter and has a huge collection of fabric remnants from all her quilting projects. We decided to use the fabric for the sachets.
I have been wanting to make some drawer sachets. There were lots of fabric with a different print. So we tried to mix and match to create some fun combinations. We started sewing a bunch of sachets over the weekend. I cut up the fabric, she sewed the edges and I fill the sachet up and sewed the opening by hand.
1. Cut the Fabric!
Step 1: Using a fabric cutting board make one sachet, measure and cut two 5 inch squares of fabric. The cutting boards have a ruler on them so it will be pretty accurate. I have a small rotary cutter which is perfect for cutting or scissors will do.
2. Sew the Sachet
Fold 1/2 inch of fabric on each side of fabric and iron until flat. Place the fabric on top of each other and sew along the 4 edges of the fabric. Keep a little opening to use to fill with lavender.
3. Add Lavender
Keep a small opening so you can fill with lavender. Create a little cone with a small piece of paper where you can use it as a filler for the lavender. You can use about 5 tablespoons of lavender for each sachet. After sewing the opening by hand. I stacked three of the sachets and tied a ribbon to create a pretty sachet stack for a gift. Buying bulk lavender is the best way to get a good price for it.
These scented drawer sachets make great gifts. Especially since mother Day is around the corner. For more lavender projects check out my lavender sugar scrub.
