Handmade Lavender Sachets

There’s a reason sachets are so popular: they’re simple to make, have many uses, and make excellent gifts. I love making these little sachets to put inside drawers, as a decorative piece on the bed, or even to throw into the dryer in lieu of dryer sheets.

To make these little bags I first traced 6 4″ x 5 1/2″ rectangles onto a piece of fabric. I then embroidered little images of lavender onto three of the rectangles using two shades of purple and one shade of green.

Next, I cutout the six rectangles and paired each plain one with an embroidered one, then hemmed all of the tops of the rectangles so that the fabric wouldn’t fray. The embroidered pieces were flipped to face in, and each set of two was sewn along the edges on the bottoms and long sides of the rectangles.

After that, I flipped the bags so that the lavender embroidery would be facing out. Lastly, each bag was filled with about 1/3 cup dry lavender and the tops were tied with twine. The dry lavender smell will last for months, and the pouches can be refilled whenever necessary.
