Stash it Sachet!

Do you remember having sachets in your sock drawer growing up, because I do. It seems that kids these days don't have them. They don't even know what sachets are! Who knew?!

We made these simple sachets during Sewing Club and everyone got very excited (although there was some giggling when we mentioned underwear drawers!). Lavender won them over.

You should make some with your kids too.

1. Trace an index card on a piece of muslin or other cotton fabric.
2. Cut fabric.
3. Fold fabric in half.
4. Start sewing at the bottom of one side and sew up 2 sides. Take your needle off the thread, but don't tie a knot. Now you have a little pocket.
5. Fill the pocket with 1 Tablespoon of lavender. It's not super full, but full enough. (see picture below) I also got some bath herbs and we made bath sachets the same way. Definitely use muslin for the bath.
6. Rethread your needle and sew up the hole. You made a sachet!
Stash it in your sock (or underwear) drawer and smell nice! Or, if you made a bath sachet, toss it in when the water is running for water fit for a princess.

Some kids got fancy with the decoration. The one above stole my heart.

Inspired by last year's Mother's Day gift, some made eye pillows by tracing 1 1/2 index cards 2 times. Sew up 3 sides then fill with 2 Tablespoons of lavender and some rice and beans (all we had on hand.)
