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.
- 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.
Would you try these at home? If you do make these or any other DIY projects share pictures with us on instagram #momintsdiy. Would love to see what you come up with.
