DIY Christening Party Favors: Hand-stitched Lavender Sachets

DIY Lavender Sachet Tutorial

Hand-stitched with a tiny cross or Baby’s name, these fragrant lavender sachets are a lovely take-away gift for your guests. Here’s how to make your own!

Lavender Sachet Materials

Materials & equipment needed:

  • scraps of muslin or linen fabric, cut into 4″ squares (2 pieces per sachet)
  • disappearing ink pen
  • ruler
  • needle
  • embroidery floss
  • dried lavender (I found mine at Amazon)
  • scissors
  • sewing machine

Steps:

1-Using your disappearing ink pen, draw a design on front muslin square for each sachet, I did two different versions.

Version A:
~Mark a straight line as a placement guide & write your desired word or name freehand ~

Version B:
~Mark your center point and use your ruler to draw a simple cross out of two rectangles. Mine measured 1 1/4″ tall by 3/4″ wide, and about 1/4″ spacing  ~

2-Hand stitch around your design with two strands of embroidery floss. Try to keep your stitches fairly equal in length, but don’t stress about being exact: the charm of these sachets is the hand-stitched detail!

3-The still visible disappearing ink will eventually disappear on its own, but you can speed up the process with a little spritz of water…sometimes you have to give it a little scratch to make it fade completely.

4-Place your embroidered front piece on top of the back piece , wrong sides together. With your sewing machine, stitch around 3 edges of the sachet. I used a 1/4″ seam allowance.
