DIY Lavender Sachets Tutorial by Town and Country LIvingFrench Lavender is one of my all-time favorite scents …

But you can opt to fill your dryer sachets with whatever scent you choose!

 

How to make lavender dryer sachets via Town and Country LivingStart 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.

 

Creating muslin bags for lavender dryer sachetsI made my own little bags using plain white tea towels that I cut into 8″ squares.

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.
