How To Make LAvender Sachets
I love lavender smell and it makes me feel good inside. So if you are interested in how to make lavender sachets you have come to the right place. 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 leftover fabric for the sachets.
Whats The Best Fabric For Sachets
Basically anything that is light weight such as sheer voilla, cotton fabric, or muslin. The fabric my sister had was light weight cotton so it was perfect. She had lots of fabric with a different prints. 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 lavender. We make a great team. ( For more lavender ideas check out my lavender candle.)
How To Make LAvender Sachets
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 that is perfect for cutting or scissors will do.
2.Sew the fabric
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. Fill the sachets 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.
4. Sew the opening
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.
You can just use one at a time. These scented drawer sachets make great gifts for any special occasion.

These are great, Maria! I’m pinning! Would be nice to make some of these for the women in my fam! I bet filling them with other dried herbs/flowers would be nice, as well!
Julie, You can fill them with anything you like. Thanks my friend for pinning.
