I love the smell of fresh lavender. I would love to visit Calefornia or France during the peak season and see nothing but fields lavender for miles around. I think I would take an extra suitcase and bring it home chucking full of fragrant flowers.
My sister sends me lavender dried flowers to make soap with occasionally. I came across my soap supplies recently and decided I needed to find a way to use these flowers more often. I came up with this easy No Sew Lavender Sachet craft for those who don’t sew or who aren’t quite ready to sew just yet. (See more about learning to sew here) This will make a great gift for Mothers Day, birthdays, wedding showers or a treat just for yourself.
Here’s what you will need:
Pre cut quilt squares 6″ size, you can find them in any fabric store or cut your own fabrics into 6″ squares
Dried lavender flowers or other herb of your choice (available online)
White rice, uncooked
Scraps of lace and ribbon trims
Satin flower bow
Fabric glue or craft glue
Mix the dried lavender with the rice, I used 1/2 cup of each. The rice adds stability to the sachet and absorbs any excess moisture from the flowers. It also stretches the flowers a bit so it costs less to make each sachet. The cost on these sachets is less than $1.00 a piece. Don’t worry, the lavender will still smell great!
Pink the edges of fabric squares if they are not pinked already. My quilt squares were already cut so I didn’t have to do it. Place your fabric square face down on a table, spoon in lavender mixture. Spread a bead of glue around the edge of the fabric, 1/2″ from raw edge. Place top fabric square over the herbs, pat edges together. Glue lace trim, ribbon, buttons and satin bow on top. Let dry overnight.
I had fun making this video tutorial for you, hope you enjoy it.
