Hello friends! It’s time again for some cozy living inspiration. Not only am I sharing my own ideas to bring a little cozy to our lives (yes, even through these warm Summer months!), but I’m also teaming up with an amazing group of blogging friends to bring you even more cozy living ideas, so be sure to check out their cozy Summer ideas at the end of this post.
This month, I’m showing you how I whipped up this simple little lavender sachet in just minutes!
How to Make a DIY Lavender Sachet
– scraps of your favourite fabric (I found mine here)
– dried lavender
– really good quality thread
one. Cut a square from your fabric measuring 10″ x 10″.
two. Fold your square in half, with wrong sides together so that you are left with a rectangle measuring 5″ x 10″. Press fold with an iron.
three. Sew a 1/2-inch seam around the outside edge of your rectangle, stopping about 2 inches from the end – this will leave you with an opening to turn your fabric right side out. Be sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of your seam.
four. Turn your rectangle right-side out and press all of the edges with an iron. Be sure to fold the edges of your opening inside the seam to match the rest of your rice bag before pressing into place. Stitch another 1/4-inch seam around the edges, stopping at the opening you left 2 inches from the end.
five. Then, using a funnel, fill your sachet with as much of the dried lavender as you’d like.
six. Making sure the edges are folded inside the seam, stitch a 1/4-inch seam along the opening to seal it closed, matching the rest of your sachet, making sure to stitch over this part one or two extra times to really shore up that stitching.
And that’s it friends!
