How to Make Easy Fragrant Lavender Sachets

Give your closets and drawer a wonderful aroma with lavender sachets. Here are 5 easy steps to make fragrant lavender sachets.

 

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 that 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.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.

5. Tie a small ribbon around the sachets.

With a ribbon tie 3 or 4 sachets together. this will give you more aroma. Otherwise, you can just use one at a time. These scented drawer sachets make great gifts. Especially since mother Day is around the corner.
