Lavender bags

You can make lavender bags out of anything that hasn’t got big holes in that the lavender will fall out. You can handsew anything too as long as you do a good tight back stitch. I would recommend using felt though if you are hand sewing. If you don’t want to buy it then use and old jumper. ( i’ll do another post with how to felt an old jumper)

All you need is 2 10cm squares of fabric. you can either use pinking shears to make them zig zag or place the fabric right sides facing and sew most of the way round. Turn in the right way and fill with dried lavender then slip stitch the hole shut. If using felt or pinking shears option the fabric will go wrong sides facing and sew most of the way round, leave a hole. Fill with lavender then close the hole up. Bobs your uncle you have lavender bags. If you look on my pinterest page I’ll post a few ideas in the recycles clothes section.   http://www.pinterest.com/hollywillow74/
