Little Lavender Sachet, FREE Pattern

I woke early this morning and decided I needed to try making a lavender sachet to include in a woolen bunny rug package. I used the vintage inspired square as an idea, I didn't follow it exactly, just did an eight petal flower then turned it into a square. Then I made another square but this time didn't fasten off, but sc around the edge on three sides of the two squares forming a bag. Then I went around the top in dc, then scalloped the top edge. Finally, I made a chain to weave in between the dc of the second last row to form a drawstring. Yay! A lavender sachet!
the lavender sachet will be filled will lavender to help protect woollen rugs from pests

  2. I am loving this pattern, I am currently making them up, putting in small purple organza bags and filling them with lavender. I will be making an Etsy shop to sell them along with my other crochet makes, I will be sure to link back to here to recognise your work. I have had a read through your blog and already think you are wonderful, especially as you are Horde ;) Thank you for giving my life a little rosy colour, much love from Wales xx
