Luckily I’ve been dreaming about this day for a few years now and I had tons of plans for my lavender. And one of those involved making my own DIY lavender bags!

DIY lavender bags
- scrap fabric
- pinking shears
- matching thread
- sewing machine
- point turner
- mini iron
- dried lavender buds (use your own or purchase them)
- Using your scissors cut a rectangular strips from your scrap fabric. You can use your desired measurements or use mine: 4″ by 3″
- Fold the strip with right sides together.
- Sew down the sides and the bottom with 1/4″ allowance (the bottom is optional but will offer a little more stability to the pouch once sewn).
- Using your pinking shears, trim the seams and the top of the pouch to 1/8″ (so all 4 sides of the rectangle).
- Box the corners with the desired method. This is what I did for this project. Mark 1/2″ away from the seam, first from the side seams then from the bottom, then draw a square, on both corners.
- Clip the corners using your pinking shears, as shown.
- Working with one corner at a time, bring the side and bottom seam together, pin and sew.
- Turn the bag right side out.
- Gently push the corners out using a point turner.
- Using a mini iron, give the bag a little press, insisting on seams.
- Fill the bags about half way with dried lavender buds and tie the top with twine.
And that’s pretty much all there is needed to make your own adorable DIY lavender bags! Wasn’t this the most easy project ever? If you liked this tutorial I would love to know it so please leave a comment below and don’t forget to rate it! Thanks!
