Lavender Bag Stacks – Crafty stocking filler

Need some crafty stocking fillers ideas? Everyone love lavender bags. You can knock a few sets of these up in an evening with very little skill and make a gorgeous stocking filler when tied up in threes with some lovely ribbon.

You will need:

Selection of fabrics (min of 30cm x 15 cm for each bag)

sewing machine

thread

ribbon

soft toy filling

dried lavender

Cut two 12cm x 12cm squares for each lavender bag you want to make. Pin the two together, right sides facing. On the sewing machine, sew round 3 sides using a straight stitch leaving a 1cm seam allowance. On the 4th side, sew half way across.  This will leave you an opening so you can fill your bag. Turn right side out and fill with a spoon full of dried lavender and some soft toy filling. Over stitch the opening. Repeat until you have three then tie up your favourite ribbon.  They look nice when made in contrasting fabrics.  I have a small Cath Kidston obsession so these are made with Provence Rose fabrics.  Or try a Christmas colour combination? Happy stitching.
