Lavender Sachets

Posted by

We don't know a lot of people who use lavender sachets in their drawers anymore, but the question is . . . why not? When they can be this pretty and make your clothes smell wonderful, sachets are a little dose of timeless luxury. Purlbee.com, one of our favorite craft blogs (run by one of our favorite fabric stores, PurlSoho,) has directions for sewing and a link to the beautiful fabric! Enjoy!
