Profumo di lavanda/Scent of lavender

Anche quest'anno ho avuto modo di raccogliere la lavanda "condominiale" :-), l'ho messa a seccare ed ecco i miei nuovi sacchettini. Spero vi piacciano.
Like last year, I had the chance to pick the lavender from the garden of the building where I live. I let to dry and I put on my handmade sachet. These are very easy to make.
These ones I made using leftovers from pieces of cotton fabric sprayed with mists, stamped and sewed.
Questi li ho fatti con degli avanzi di stoffa, del cotone spruzzato con i mist, stampati e cuciti.
Questi sono un semplice quadrato di stoffa cucito e poi incollato sopra del pizzo colorato con i mist. Molto semplici e veloci da fare.
These are are even simpler to make:
-cut two squares of natural calico
-sew them together along with a piece of ribbon as a holder, leaving an opening
-stuff with the lavender, seeds and branches
-sew the opening
-cut and colour some pieces of lace (I used the Cosmic Mister)
-glue the lace to the sachet

Ooh you lucky thing!! One of my favourite scents sweetie, I used to pick lavender (with permission) from a neighbours garden when I was a child. Your sachets are beautiful, what a brilliant way to preserve a gorgeous smell.

So beautiful, Gio! I adore lavender, but I just can't seem to grow it in my garden - wrong kind of soil! I have to buy it in the apothecary. I love the coloured lace on these delicate little sachets. Daisy, my cat does not have lavender to lie in like Karen's, but she loves her Rosemary patch in the garden! Julie Ann xx
