How To Easily Sew an Embroidered Lavender Sachet

These little sachet bags filled with your favorited dried flora are a delight!

Learning to make a drawstring bag is a treat too as you can turn this pattern and technique into many uses.

If you choose to embroider your sachets, follow the technique above and use a nice sturdy embroidery needle paired with yarn or embroidery thread.

Create your design on one piece of your bag material.

To make your sachets, start by setting up your sewing machine or preparing a needle and thread.

Next, take your chalk or other fabric marker and draw a small dash at 1.5" down from the top of your fabric - lengthwise.

This is where you will begin and end sewing on each side.

Using a 1/2" seam allowance, begin sewing by sinking your seam with a back tack - sew three stitches forward, reverse and sew three stitches and then continue sewing.

When you come to the bottom corner of your bag, pivot by sinking your needle, lifting the sewing foot and rotating your fabric 90 degrees to continue sewing the bottom edge.

Pivot your fabric again when you approach the second corner and continue sewing up to your chalk mark.

Back-tack and end your seam at your chalk mark.

Next, fold 1/4" once, then again at all 4 of the edges of your bag above the chalk marks.

Sew all 4 of these seam allowances.

Now make your drawcord channels by folding the top raw edge down once approximately 1/4" and then down to meet the edge or 'line' that runs between your chalk marks.

Sew along these 2 folds to create your channels.

Use a bodkin or a safety pin to pull your ribbon or twine through each channel. 

Tie your ribbon off and you're done with your bag.

Next, fill your sachet bag with sweet smelling lavender or other scented dried potpourri.
