I'm going to show you how I made some of these fun little Lavender Sachets, by using on of the digital paper patterns. Here is a close up of one of them.
And here they are. The Digital paper pattern I used was "Rose Swirls" DP-203 and the stamps I used for the little tags are from the Vintage Labels Clear Art stamp set.
I use Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power tape to adhere a cut piece of lightweight white cotton fabric to a piece of cardstock to prepare it to run it thru my printer.
I wrap the fabric around all the edges of the cardstock , taping in the back , pushing it down to make sure it is adhered to the double sided tape. I also trim away excess fabric from the corners.
Simple sewing here :) Just put two fabric pieces printed sides facing in, and stitch around all sides, leaving just enough of an opening to be able to add the lavender.
( I machine stitched mine. But you could certainly hand stitch them, just make sure your stitches are close enough together that your lavender wont fall out).
with a little work.... turn it right sides out :)
Time to add the lavender. I just grabbed a scrap of paper off my desk and formed a little funnel of sorts to make it a bit easier.
Now, time to stitch up that last little opening by hand. (ps. if you noticed a different piece of fabric on the back of mine, it's because I ran out of white fabric to print on .. and just didn't have it in me to make a run to the fabric store again ) lol
Now, you can stamp your little tag to add and add some pretties. Ribbon, Lace, whatever strikes your fancy. These will make your drawer smell lovely of course, or be great to stick in your suitcase, but they would be a sweet little gift to leave on the pillow of an overnight guest, wouldn't they?
