Lavender…ahhhh, even the sound of it makes me feel better. The word is beautiful but the aroma, well the aroma is the real treasure isn’t it? Lavender is soothing and peaceful. And to be honest, lately, I’ve needed all the peace and serenity I can get.
“Lavender is used for restlessness, insomnia, nervousness, and depression. It is also used for a variety of digestive complaints…”
These pretty (and easy) Lavender Sachets would make wonderful gifts-fill a pretty jar with a supply for your favorite lavender-loving birthday girl…
Got a second? Let me show you how I made these…

Here’s what you need…
*Fabric...I love using: Batiste Fabric-Organic Cotton it's lightweight and looks almost like beautiful heirloom fabric.
*Lavender….this is the exact lavender I used: Lavender Flowers – 1/2 Pound …Ultra Blue….Culinary Grade
*Transfer Paper: Transfers for Inkjet Printers,
*A French graphic (in reverse if there are words) I got mine HERE
First, print your graphic on transfer paper…(do a practice run in black & white on copy paper)
Cut your fabric in the size that will accommodate your graphic with a little room on each side–
Iron the image onto your fabric…(I decided to fray the edges of my fabric) –
Put right sides together & sew 3 sides together…
Leave 1 side open for filling.
Sew the open edge together…
There are so many images on Etsy and Graphics Fairy…you’ll have fun looking!
Like I said, these would be great gifts, but if nothing else, make a few for yourself…put some into your dresser and tuck one under your pillow…who knows- maybe you’ll wake feeling washed in serenity…
This is another one of my Year of Reckless Crafting posts!
