Véronique, an old friend, sent me some lavender just before Christmas. It comes from her garden, near Avignon, and smells absolutely gorgeous.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I always have lavender bags in my drawers . . . I just love the fragrance. Anyway, what do we do, when we’re lucky enough to receive a big bowl full of lavender? Of course . . . rifle through the scrap box, find some lace & ribbons, and make lavender bags! (or in my case, lavender cushions)
In order to make the lavender go a bit further, I’ve stuffed my little cushions half and half with lavender and soft-toy stuffing. Also attached a ribbon to each, because I like to hang my bags/cushions on coat hangers in the wardrobe.
I’ll show you some close up photos at a later date. I haven’t finished them all yet. I am having great fun, using up my scraps, and my sewing room smells wonderful ^^
