Laundry Sachets

It was a combination of feeling crafty and the need to personalize a bridal shower gift that lead me to this Lavender Sachet How To Project. Also, it was the motivation I needed to start using my sewing machine. Simple squares are much easier to take the plunge with than complicated clothing patterns. They were super easy to make with a sewing machine and I am sure they can be sewn by hand too. Give them with a laundry-themed wedding gift or put them in your drawers to have nice smelling linens and clothes.

  1. Using a ruler, I drew 4.5x4.5 inch squares on paper and pinned these to the fabric.
  2. I cut out the fabric squares and ironed them together with the wrong sides facing each other. 
  3. Using my sewing machine, I sewed a zig-zag pattern around the edges leaving enough of an opening to pour in the scented stuff. 
  4. I created a funnel by rolling together a piece of paper and inserting it into the opening.
  5. I then poured in the scented filling. Passion fruit scent from JoAnn Fabrics, which smells amazing. 
  6. I closed up the opening with the sewing machine, tied ribbons and hand sewed them to the front.
