This week Handmade Jane posted a blog tutorial for making lavender bags – perfect for Mother’s Day, she reckoned. ‘The easiest present in the world,’ was her claim.
So I decided to test her theory.
Wednesday – ordered a bag of lavender from Provence Lavender, as recommended by Jane.
Thursday – lavender awaiting me on my arrival home from work. Okay, that was really quick!
Friday morning before work – switched on the radio and checked my watch. I was going to time this make. 25 sweet minutes later I had this:
The most time-consuming step was spooning the lavender into the sachet. I wish you could have smelt the pungent aromas that drifted up to me! Lavender is velvet soft to the touch. It really is a sensory smorgasbord.
