DIY Lovely Lavender Sachet

As you have probably figured out by now, Jim and I love going on outdoor adventures.  Unfortunately, these little escapades usually result in a not-so-sweet-smelling vehicle – So I decided to sew up a fragrant lavender sachet for my car to ward off any unpleasant scents.

It takes very little time to make and requires supplies you can probably find around your home!

Materials:

  • about 1 tablespoon dried lavender buds
  • two 3×3-inch pieces of fabric
  • scissors
  • sewing thread
  • sewing needle

Directions:

  1. Cut two identically-shaped hearts from fabric pieces
  2. Align the fabric hearts on top of one another and use a running stitch to sew them together
  3. Before finishing the stitch, fill heart with lavender buds and sew it closed
  4. Attach a loop of thread for easy hanging

This little heart packs a big punch!  Now I get a nice waft of fresh lavender every time I hop in my car … instead of  any lingering smells from our last adventure …

Enjoy!

P.S.  Not good with needles?  You can purchase one of these lovely lavender sachets right here!
