If you love lavender, you are in the right place. Today, I’m sharing a project that turned out to be really fun and easy. The best part is that it was so fast…as in quick…as in I made these 2 little no sew burlap lavender sachets in 20 minutes. That included straightening the burlap!

Here’s what I did. First I always prepare my burlap for sewing. You can see what to do by checking out my tutorial How to Wash, Dry and Cut Burlap.

Directions for 2 Burlap Lavender Sachets

Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of burlap that measure 5 in. x 12 in. Pull 4 or 5 threads of burlap from all sides of each piece of burlap.

Step 2: Fold one short side over about 4-5 inches and press with an iron.

Step 3: Press the opposite end over the first end so they overlap, and form a pouch.

Step 4: Open your pouch back up. Cut 2 pieces of iron-on fusible web tape for each sachet that measure about 5 inches. Place them in the middle section as close to the frayed sides as you can. Fold the bottom of the pouch back up and press together so the sides of the pouch are fused together. This will seal the burlap so it won’t fray any further. Fill the pouch with a scoop of fresh lavender.

Now it’s time to close your burlap lavender sachets.

Step 5: Cut another piece of iron on fusible tape about 4 in. long. Lay it where the pouch overlaps. Fold the top down and lightly press the sachet with an iron to fuse it together.

Step 6: Fire up your glue gun so it’s good and hot. Apply the embellishments of your choice (vintage buttons and lace) by carefully gluing them to the front of the burlap lavender sachets. If you wish to hang your sachets, just slip a piece of twine under the flap, and tie a little knot.

Bonus Tip: after a while, the lavender will lose its scent. Just refresh your burlap lavender sachets with a few drops of lavender essential oil.
