Embroidered Lavender Sachet


Hello Friends!
 Welcome
I'm so glad you are here.




It's that time to collect the Lavender from my garden.

It's also time to start making some crafts for the Christmas Boutique Season.
These embroidered lavender sachets are always a  popular item.

I will share my shortcut with you...
I use the organza bags from the DOLLAR TREE.
They come in a few colors, I love the pale yellow/cream color.
The bags come 8 to a pack for one dollar.
3'' x 4''


I used embroidery floss in the color number 29 and 522

Cut a length of floss about 18'' and divide the 6 strands of floss in half.

Use the 3 strands and a needle to begin. 



I found it was easier to embroider when the bag was filled.



I used a running stitch stems and Daisy loop flowers.

 To get started just free hand the stems, then add leaves-





Then  stitch the flowers........ fill with Lavender buds and done!







Ways to use your sachets :
  • Use the sachet to scent your drawers and keep insects away. 
  •  A lavender sachet will work as a natural air freshener. 
  • Keep a sachet near your bed, the fragrance helps you relax. 
  • Give lavender sachets as gifts. 
  • Toss into the clothes dryer.
  • Put a sachet in your car, the heat will release the scent.
  • Tuck one inside your purse or suitcase.
When the sachet starts to lose the scent,
 just give the bag a little squeeze and it will become fragrant again.
The bags can be refilled when needed.



I have more to go......



When these are finished they will be set aside for
the Christmas Boutique.
 Do you start your Christmas crafting in the summer?
I would love to hear from you !

      Summer is such a busy time. I'm so glad you could visit.
      I work a split shift- morning and night. Crafting is my relaxation.

  2. I loved your embroidered lavendar sachet. I started embroidering again last week--two dishtowels after being on a knitting and crocheting jag--I work while my SO drives us around. I am definitely going to do a few of these as I have a bag of lavendar flowers and the little bags, too!

      Thank you so much. I just adore embroidered dish towels.
      I have quite a collection that no one is allowed to use!
      When I was a little girl I loved to embroider pillow cases. I'm glad you plan to make some bags. Using the bags from Dollar Tree save so much time and the cost is low. I sure appreciate your sweet comments. xo Lisa S

      Thank you for your sweet comment. Buying the bags is a great shortcut. You are so right- 8 tiny gifts for $1 is a good deal.

      I think my lavender plants do well because they like to be left alone and not too much water. My neglect is to their benefit. Give them lots of room and don't plant among other plants that need to be watered often. The plants don't like to be watered at their base because lavender is prone to root rot. Maybe you can try again :)
      Thanks for stopping by- xo Lisa S
