- 10″ Square White Lace
- 1/4 Cup Lavender Flowers
- 24″ White Satin Ribbon, 1″Width
- Sewing Machine
- White Thread
- Fusible Web
Using a sewing machine will be a great advantage when making these sachets. However, you will be able to make them using a needle and thread or fusible web to bind them together.
- Fold the lace square in half and cut it. Fold each half in half again and cut them. You will use only 3 of the 4 pieces.
- Fold each lace section in half, making a rectangle shape and iron it. Sew one short side and one long side. With one side folded over, sewing the others should make a tube shape with the top open. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you may stitch the sides by hand or insert fusible web and iron them together.
- Fold the lace tubes inside out, so the seam is on the inside. Stuff each one with equal amounts of lavender and rose petals until they are plump. You may want to mix the lavender and rose petals in a bowl before stuffing the sachets.
- Turn the top section in to create a finished edge. Insert a small piece of fusible web and apply a hot iron to seal the end.
- Find the center of the ribbon and place it under one of the small pillow shaped sachets. Stack the other two on top of it and tie the ribbon around all three. Knot the ribbon on top and tie a bow. Trim the ends of the ribbon in a V shape.
