This pretty lavender bag is made from the corner of a lovely old tray cloth. Its sweet floral spray of vintage embroidery was the perfect size for a lavender bag. It has a softly washed and faded feel, showing its history as the favourite cloth to serve afternoon tea with. It is filled with dried lavender from Terrington in North Yorkshire, and has 3 tiny old buttons in the corner. Lavender has been used for centuries to aid a good night's sleep, keep clothes smelling fresh, and ward off pesky moths. This pretty vintage embroidery lavender bag would be just right to store in a drawer with a bridal gown, as a house warming present or as a gift for Mother’s Day.

This little bag measures 9 cm by 9 cm and inside is nestling a tiny muslin pillow filled with English lavender from North Yorkshire.
There is a practical hook for popping onto a clothes hanger or hanging up in a bedroom to keep the air sweet.
The back is made from a fragment of vintage cut back embroidery, its little holes allowing the scent out, and 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.


I like to winkle out these fragments of careworn linens on my fabric hunts. I even value their washed and faded appearance, and its great to be able to give them a new lease of life, and keep them valued a little longer.
