Want an easy project you can make quickly that smells oh so good? I’m here to show you how to make lavender dryer sachets. Yes … dryer sachets! In a matter of minutes you can have pretty, lavender dryer sachets that you toss into your dryer to make your laundry smell fresh and beautiful. The subtle scent of lavender is sure to boost your spirits during these gray winter days!
But you can opt to fill your dryer sachets with whatever scent you choose!
Start with “heat-sealing” tea bags that you can order from Save-On-Crafts.
They come in packs of 100 and can be used for a variety of projects.
Mmm. I love the scent of the lavender while making these dryer sachets.
… or you can purchase pre-made drawstring muslin bags from a craft or fabric store.
You could also purchase muslin fabric … muslin is an inexpensive fabric and it’s easy to work with.
After cutting, I folded 3 sides in at about 1/2″ wide, leaving the hemmed end of the towel at the top.
Then grab 3 strands of embroidery thread and simply sew a running stitch along 3 sides.
You’ll leave the top open so you can stuff the filled tea bag inside.
I added a small embroidered flower to my bags but it’s not necessary.
Although these lavender dryer sachets smell fragrant, they only add a trace of scent to your laundry.
If you prefer a stronger scent, toss in more than one lavender dryer sachet with each load.
Once they lose their fragrance, simply replace the lavender-filled tea bag with a new one.
