For Gorgeous Smelling Drawers: How I Make My Own Lavender Sachets


Imagine opening up your drawers and being hit by the gorgeous scent of lavender. Sounds like a dream to me, if I’m being honest. However, this is the type of small luxury that doesn’t have to cost you a fortune — all you need is a few lavender sachets. And today, I’m going to teach you how to make them all by yourself! Lavender sachets are the perfect solution for infusing your drawers and closets with a soothing scent. And even though you can buy them almost anywhere, making your own could be such a fun DIY project. So if you’re looking for a fun challenge to do during the weekend, let’s go over the process, step by step.

Materials Needed

Before we jump into the crafting fun, let’s make sure we have all the materials we need. Here’s what you’ll want to gather:

  • Dried lavender buds
  • Fabric squares or pouches (think muslin, cotton, or any breathable fabric)
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Ribbon or twine (optional)

Now that we’ve got our supplies in order, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and start crafting some lavender magic! Don’t worry — the process is super easy. So even if you have no experience with sewing, it’s no issue at all.

Prepare Your Fabric Squares

Alright, let’s kick things off by prepping our fabric squares. You can choose any size you like for your sachets, but I find that squares around 4×4 inches work beautifully. If you’re using a sewing machine, go ahead and hem the edges of your fabric squares to prevent any fraying. If you’re stitching by hand, simply fold over the edges and secure them with a running stitch. However, if you just can’t figure out how to do the stitches correctly — don’t worry. I have a cheat code for you — hot glue! You can glue the edges together, give it a few minutes to cool down and fold the square over.

Fill ‘Em & Seal the Deal

Finally, it’s time for the fun part – filling our fabric squares with lavender! Ideally, you would use dried lavender buds from your own garden. However, I know that not everyone will have this option available. Luckily, you can buy them at most craft stores, or even online. Be generous with the lavender – especially if you want the smell to fill up your closet! However, don’t forget to leave a bit of space at the top for sealing. Now that the sachets are bursting with lavender, it’s time to seal the deal. Use the technique that you were using for your fabric squares. So, either seal them with a sewing machine, stitches, or a little bit of hot glue.

Tie It Up & Enjoy

We’re almost there! The only thing that’s left to do is add a few finishing touches. Feeling fancy? Add a few cute ribbons to your sachets. This will not only look cute but also allow you to hang the sachets in your closet or drawers. Ah, can you smell that? It’s the heavenly scent of lavender wafting through the air! Pop your freshly crafted sachets into your drawers, closets, or anywhere else that could use a fragrant pick-me-up. Not only will your storage spaces smell divine, but the lavender scent will also help keep pests at bay, leaving your clothes fresh and protected.
