A great idea for a Mother's Day gift or birthday for the women in your life! Easy homemade project for beginner sewers like me. Lavender is a natural stress reliever, relaxant, and moth repellent. It's great for freshening your drawers, car, closets, bathroom, etc.

    Take a regular piece of paper and roll it into a cone. You will use this as your funnel for the lavender. Insert into handkerchief and fill. I used a little less than 3/4 of a cup for each. You don't want to over fill because you still need room to sew them shut. Once filled, sew remaining opening.
