How to make a lavender satchel

0
Your rating: None
This is a great sewing project for beginners and makes a lovely gift. You can hang this lavender satchel on a wall as a natural air freshener, or place it in a dresser drawer to keep your clothes smelling fresh.
What you'll need: 
dried lavender
fabric of your choice
ribbon
scissors
sewing needle
thread
pins
1: 
Cut two identical diamonds out of your fabric. Pin them together with their right sides facing out.
2: 
Sew up three sides of your diamonds. Stuff the dried lavender into the satchel through the last open side before sewing that side shut as well.
3: 
Fold your ribbon into a small loop, and pin both ends to the top corner of your satchel. Sew the ribbon to the satchel. Now the satchel can hang from the ribbon.
Tips: 
You can make these satchels in any shape you want. Try heart or star shapes for a more challenging project.
