Lavender sachets

Here in the south of France, lavender grows really well. In early June, we went on holidays to the Verdon, and here is a picture of me in front of one of the many fields of lavender on the Plateau de Valensole:

We have several plants in the garden here at home too, and this year I harvested the flowers once they started to fade. I dried them, and decided to make some lavender sachets to use up the flowers.

I hand embroider the lavender motif onto squares of cotton fabric and stuff them with some dried lavender flowers and polystuffing. They smell wonderful!

I went a bit crazy, and made enough for my linen closets, as well as for gifts, and I still have some left over, so I decided to sell them in my brand spanking new Etsy shop! Feel free to head on over there if you’d also like some of the lavender goodness! 🙂
