Homemade Gift: DIY Lavender Sachets

DSC_3796

Still in the spirit of DIY and christmas gift ideas, i made these really easy lavender bags.

Things you will need:

  • Material of your choice. I chose this pretty polka dot material that i cut from a blouse i never wear.
  • Some lace to decorate your bags.
  • Some dry lavender.
  • Thread and needle.
  • Scissors.
  • Using a sewing machine for these was great however you can also hand sew them.

There are so many tutorials online with step by step instructions. I found this helpful.

To begin cut out your material to the shape that you want your bags to be. I made small squares and a long rectangle. I honestly didnt measure these out , kind of just estimated and cut out.

Fold the fabric in half inside out and secure with pins

Sew a seam around only 3 sides leaving one side open .  Turn right side out.

Fold open seams inward and machine or hand sew shut. Position lace where you want it to be and hand sew.
