Lavender sachets are easy to make and give your closet or clothes drawers a clean scent that also reputed to keep the moths away. I used dried lavender from my garden, but you can buy it if you don't grow your own.
What You'll Need:
Dried lavender buds
1. Cut a fabric square, around 6 inches. Handkerchiefs make ideal squares.
2. Cut a rectangle of quilting, approximately 3 by 6 inches.
3. With the fabric square design side down, sprinkle a few tablespoons of dried lavender into the middle of the square.
4. Fold batting in half and place on top of lavender in middle of fabric square.
5. Ball batting and bring up the sides of the fabric to encase the lavender and batting.
6. Cut a length of ribbon. If you wish, tie a loop in the middle of the ribbon to use to hang a sachet over a coat hanger.
7. Hold the bunched quilting and lavender and gather up the ends of the square.
8. Tie around with a length of ribbon and fashion a bow.
