Welcome to On Sutton Place! Today I ‘m sharing a project that turned out to be really fun and 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.
For 2 sachets this is what you do:
Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of burlap that measure 5 in. x 12 in. Pull 4 or 5 threads of burlap from both long sides and one short side.
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.
Step 5: 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.
Step 6: 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 to fuse it together.
I know it’s sometimes hard to find fresh, fragrant lavender buds. I have never found any locally so I always buy online. Two great sources are Etsy and eBay. Just search “dried lavender buds” on eBay and quite a few listings come up. Now is the time of year to buy lavender as it’s just being harvested.
Here is some more burlap inspiration!
