Charm Square Lavender Bags
I was given a present of a big bag of dried lavender this summer. The smell of lavender has always reminded me of my childhood as lavender grew, triffid-like, in our front garden. As summer is coming to an end it is lovely to capture that smell in lavender bags to use in the following months.
I used a moda tutorial I found here. They were straightforward to make out of two charm squares each, but as it involved manipulating the fabric it was quite a good exercise in controlling fabric under the sewing machine. Definitely a case of the last one I made was quicker and tidier than the first one I made!
They are stuffed with toy stuffing along with the lavender to give the bags a plumper appearance. I chose not to fill them too much so they are lovely and squashy.
It was a fun way to use a charm pack.
