New Lavender Sachets...

Kevin and I have added a new product today...Lavender Sachets.  They smell great, and they're a nice little gift or a treat for your sock drawer :)  

To make these, you'll need small burlap bags (either handmade or ready-made bought online), a stencil, fabric paint, a sponge or spouncer ( we used these by Plaid), and some ribbon.

First, place the stencil near the bottom of the bag.  Then dip the spouncer in a saucer of fabric paint, blot lightly on a paper towel which will help to get an even coat of paint , and spounce over the stencil.  Press fairly hard with the sponge, as this will help to get crisp edges.

Once you've filled in the stencil, remove it and let the bag dry.

Fill the bottom of the bag with a little stuffing (this allows you to use less lavender), then spoon in two or three big spoonfuls of lavender.

Now, just pull the drawstring on your bag (if it has one), or cut 16" of ribbon and tie the opening closed.

That's it!  Your super cute sachet is finished!  You can use your own creativity when you choose your image and your ribbon.  You could add words with letter stamps, too, if you like. Endless possibilities!
