Lavender sachet with paper pieced flower - tutorial

This small bag has collected the sweet scent of lavender flowers.
The sachet is full of fragrance.
Great for drawers to keep underwear fresh.
Simply put the lavender sachet in the wardrobe to prevent the clothes.
I made this Little lavender sachet with simple paper pieced flower on it.
Measures approximately:
4" (10 cm) squire
In fact it is easier to sew paper foundation method wit such small pieces.

You will need:
  • some scraps fabrics
  • 4 1/2 " squire fabric for the back
  • lavender flower - about 30 grams
  • 8 " ribbon - optionally
Step 1. Paper piece the flower following instructions and pattern from here. Trim 4 1/2" square.

Step 2. Cut a piece of fabric 4 1/2" square. It could be different color from the top.

Step 3. Sew two pieces right side together. Don't forget to leave 2" opening for turning the sachet.

Step 4. Trim the corner and turn.
Step 5. Fill with lavender flowers and stitch blind stitch the opening.

Shake sachet from time to time to force the scent.

You want to add ribbon to hang in the wardrobe? Look at this picture.

It is very easy to do.
After Step 2 you should insert the ribbon.
Cut  2 pieces of ribbon 4" each.
Get the back fabric and stitch in the corner on the right side 1/4"from the edge.
Then follow with Step 3.

After some months when the fragrance of lavender disappear you can fill the bag with cotton and use as a nice pincushion!
