Description

This pretty lavender bag is made from the corner of a lovely old tray cloth from a charity shop in York. Its vintage embroidery spray of flowers is the perfect size for the front of a lavender bag, and I have made the back from a fragment of old table linen, its pierced design letting out the lovely scent. It is filled with dried lavender from Terrington in North Yorkshire. Since ancient times the lovely lavender has been used to aid sleep, store with clothing to make it smell fresh, and keep away pesky moths. Lovely to pop in a drawer with a bridal gown, as a housewarming gift or as a Mother’s Day present.

The back is made from the corner of a white tablecloth, its cut out design allowing the lavender scent to waft out.
This little bag measures 10 cm by 10 cm, and inside is nestling a tiny muslin pillow filled with Yorkshire lavender.
There is a practical hook for popping onto a clothes hanger or hanging up in a bedroom, to keep the air sweet.
The front and back are made from different sections of vintage embroidery, and create a different design front and back.
The bag is finished off with my own embroidered name tag.
Just squeeze gently from time to time to refresh your lavender scent.

I like to reuse as much as possible. Your little bag will be posted out to you wrapped in clean, recycled packaging.
It will be sent out to you by Royal Mail 2nd class with proof of posting.

Inspiration

I love to find these care worn embroidered table linens on my textile hunts. It’s a shame to let those lovely hand stitched embroideries go to waste, and making lavender bags ensures they last a little longer. The old cut back embroideries are perfect for letting the lavender scent escape.
