Spring is upon us and I have vivid images of flowers bursting from the ground in a riot of color. Well, we aren’t there yet with our garden or yard – but, I feel it is right around the corner. To freshen up my home – and spirits – I love the fragrance of dried fresh lavender.
A friend gave me this bag of lavender not too long ago…
…so I decided to make sachets. I started by cutting two squares of cream colored burlap fabric. You can make any size you want. My cuts are 3 1/2″ square. Even if you can’t sew with a machine, you can use Stitch Witchery or HeatnBond. You will just need to be extra careful when filling your sachets.
I also cut purple fabric. This was a $1 apron from Dollar Tree. You know me – always figuring out ways to make a project easier for myself – I just cut out the pocket from the apron. It was already a perfect square! I followed the same steps as I did with the burlap.
This is the color I dream about 🙂 I love my vintage Mason jar. It is very old and it was rescued from a yard that was full of bottles. The glass was clear at one time, but turned this beautiful hue by being out in the elements for a very long time.
Ways that I use lavender sachets:
- Placed in dresser drawers…but not in my Honey Bees drawers 🙂
- Hung in my closet
- Hung from doorknobs
- Used as potpourri in a bowl placed on a table
- Inside my pillowcase
- I place in the microwave for a minute or two to remove funky odors in the kitchen. You can also use this method when you want the house to smell good.
I have also placed dried lavender in a small piece of cheese cloth and added to my bath.
