April Stash Bust: Five Projects to Bust That Fabric Stash

4. Lavender Sachet

A sachet stuffed with organic, dried lavender is a great way to make your dresser drawers smell nice. If you use a durable fabric, you can even toss one in the dryer to scent your clothes without a chemical-laden dryer sheet. Just grab two 6″ square scraps and stitch them together, right side in, leaving a 1/2″ opening to flip it right side out. Flip your sachet and stuff with dried lavender, close up the open part using a ladder stitch, and you’re ready to rock!

If you want a little loop of ribbon, like the one in the photo, just pin the loop between your right-side-in fabric sandwich before you sew. Make sure the loop is facing inside the sachet, so it will stick out when you flip it.
