A lovely visitor this weekend left me a couple of bunches of fresh lavender from the farmer’s market. How sweet! I’ve never had fresh lavender in the house before. But I have bought a few lavender-scented products in my life. Including those little lavender sachets that make your drawers and linen closets smell nice. So I decided I would make my own to fill . . . once the lavender dries out.
I needed some light fabric to work with so I decided to use a cheapie shirt I found at Ross a while back… that I hate. It was back during my lose the baby weight days. I couldn’t stand trying on clothes, so I bought it off the rack as is. It looks cute yes, but actually clings to the areas that I’m not so fond of.
I used the sleeve . . .
Apply the iron-on tape per the instructions on the packaging.
Fold fabric onto itself and iron the edges where the tape was applied.
Turn the sachet inside out . . .
The seams look nice and tidy . . .
I used the tassel on the shirt to tie the top. This way I can refill it down the road.
Oh, just another little thing you can do with the lavender . . .
It’s a sock filled with uncooked rice. It’s a great DIY heating pad. I use it a ton for sore muscles or “lady pains.” Microwave it for 2 minutes or so and it gives you a moist heat. You can reuse it almost forever (I think.) I read that you can add lavender to these things too. The heat activates the lavender scent. Instant spa.
Until next Monday,
