My favourite kind of crafts are simple ones. Minimal preparation and skill are good. No mess is even better.
I got the idea for these no-sew lavender bags from my son’s school. They’re definitely simple. They’re also really useful – lavender not only smells lovely, it protects your clothes from moths too.
Here’s what you need to do…
Cut out some circles of fabric. I drew round a small plate with a diameter of 16cm for mine. Use pinking shears if you have them as this will stop the fabric fraying, but don’t worry if you can’t.
Place about a dessert spoon of dried lavender on each circle, then bring the fabric together in a bunch and secure with some ribbon. You can leave the ends of your ribbon long and tie them into a hanging loop if you like.
And that’s it. A little lavender bag for your wardrobe or drawers in five minutes.
I bought a huge bag of lavender from Norfolk Lavender, and all fabrics were scraps from other projects. You could re-use old fabric, or even use the feet off an old pair of tights (although, naturally, this won’t look so pretty!).
