{valentine’s lavender sachet}

Oo-la-la! I am super excited to share a project with you that
I just completed for Valentine’s Day, a heavenly lavender heart sachet.
My entire home now has the sweet, intoxicating scent of lavender.
I am sharing my Valentine’s Lavender Sachet tutorial with you!
 
Woo-Who! Let’s get busy.
Cut scrap fabric strips into various sizes from 1”, 1 ½”, 1 ¾” tall x 8 wide.
Quilt the pieces together into a fun pattern to create a square roughly 8” x 10”.
Download Pattern.
Here!
Select a fabric for the back of your sachet, I used a white fluffy chenille.
Cut the front and back of your fabric into the heart shape from the pattern.
The hearts should be 6 ¼” wide x 8 ½” tall.
Cut a red ribbon 11 inches long.
Pin to the right side of the fabric, then sew
a small stitch at the top to tack into place and remove pins.
Pin the hearts together with the right sides in and sew leaving a
2” opening on the left bottom side for filling with lavender buds.
Turn your heart right side out and fill with lavender buds.
Stitch the side closed and embellish your heart with
buttons, ribbon, pins and flowers.
Whaa-laa! Done! Finished!
 
Happy Valentines Day!
Smiles, Paula
