Mini Lavender Pillow Stack
Having dried my lavender the other day, I had to make some sort of pouches to actually put the lavender in, as much as I love hearts, I wanted something a little different, so thought of little pillows.
If you want some of your own, here’s what to do.
Choose 2 complementary fabrics, and iron on some interfacing.
From each fabric cut 3 squares, I think mine were 9, 11 and 14cm.
Place fabrics one on top of the other, right side facing.
Sew around all 4 edges, leaving a gap for turning.
Snip away any excess fabric and square off the corners.
Turn right side out, using a pokey thing to get the corners all nice and neat.
Press the whole thing.
In a small bowl make a mixture of dried rice and lavender, and using a funnel, a cone made out of paper works too, fill each pillow to approximately 2/3rds full.
Once you’re happy with the quantity of mixture in each pillow, top stitch each pocket closed.
If you need to leave this, or a similar project for any amount of time, such as dinner, bed time or hospital appointment, these clips are awesome for securing the fabric and preventing the mixture from spilling out.
Once I had all 3 finished, I stacked them up and used a piece of ribbon to secure them together.
I’m so chuffed with this little project, my very own handmade lavender pillows, using lavender I grew and dried, love it!
These are going in the towel cupboard; keep the towels smelling lovely and moth free.
This would make a fun hand sewing project and would be a cute little gift all tied up with the ribbon.
