Introduction

Wool sachets filled with spoonfuls of fragrant dried lavender look right at home among knitted winter garments; the porous woven swatches are ideal for releasing the scent of the herb.

materials

  • Two 4-inch square swatches of fabric

  • Sewing kit

  • Lavender

  • Additional fabric for monograming (optional)

  • Yarn

steps

  1. Hold two 4-inch square swatches back-to-back and hand-sew them together around the edges, leaving a 2-inch opening on the fourth side.

  2. Fill the sachet with lavender, and hand-sew the opening closed. If you wish, personalize the sachets with a monogram or other fanciful design; we cross-stitched a heart shape to one side of each sachet with a contrasting yarn before sewing the squares together. Use the weave of the fabric as a grid to keep stitches a uniform size.
