What you need...
- Fabric: floral; solid pale pink
- Plain canvas
- Machine thread: white, pink
- Thermal batting
- Satin ribbon, cream, 5mm
- Dried lavender
Lavender Bags - 1 Cut rectangles from canvas, 8cm x 16cm. Fold in half lengthwise and sew up the outer two sides. Turn right sides out and press. Fold the open raw edges inside by 5mm and press again. Fill the canvas bags with lavender through the open side. Pin the pressed raw edges together and topstitch or hand sew closed.
2 Snip two floral rectangles, 10cm x 13cm, place right sides together and sew up three sides. Turn right sides out and press. Fold the open raw edges inside by 5mm and press. Repeat again to create a small rolled hem and topstitch this carefully.
3 Pin a length of ribbon, 40cm, to the centre back, roughly 2cm from the top. Sew a little line of stitches to hold in place. Place the canvas lavender pouch inside the floral bag and tie the ribbons in a bow to close. When the scent fades, just undo and re-make the canvas bags inside.
