  • How to make a scent pouches. Sweet Lavender Pillow - Step 1
    Step 1

    We will need three different size material patches: a backing-patch
    of beige linen measuring 14x14cm, a striped patch
    of cotton material 7x14cm and a flowery cotton patch
    measuring 14x11cm in size.

    Place the two front patches face to face and sew together. Cut along the seam allowance with a pinking
    shears, to prevent the fabric from fraying

    Press the seam open and turn the patch over facing you. Cut two
    lengths of lace, both a little wider than the patch, so you can
    fold these in between the front and back layers later. Attach them by sewing one seam straight across all layers.

    Turn both the front and back piece face down and fold in one centimetre all the way around. Iron flat and don`t forget to fold in the lace bits as well. Place the two pieces back to back on top of each other. Check that they are fully aligned and of the same size then pin them in place.
    Sew almost all the way around, leave a small gap to
    fill the pillow with dried Lavender, then sew the whole thing closed.
