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.

    1. I did plant a few lavender plants in my garden this summer as I missed them! Hoping they will flower next year.
