How sweet is this pair of lavender bags? Each is made from a vintage childrens hanky illustrating the nursery rhyme, Little boy Blue. They include the horn, the boy blue, a cow and a sheep! Inside each lavender sachet is nestling a muslin bag filled with lavender from Terrington in North Yorkshire. Lavender is the natural way to a good nights sleep, an eco moth repellent! and a lovely way to scent your clothes. Pop them in a drawer for keeping things fresh and sweet. These lavender bags would make a great present for a vintage textile fan, for remembering those lovely nursery rhymes, or as a little present for new parents of twins. (I have twins, and would have loved these!)

The lavender bags measure 9 cm by 9 cm.
Inside is a muslin bag filled with dried Yorkshire lavender.
There is a hook for hanging over a clothes hanger, and they are finished off with my own embroidered name tag.

I like to reuse. Your bags will arrive wrapped in clean, recycled wrapping from my hoard, and posted out as Royal Mail 2nd class.


I have a little collection of childrens hankies, I find them hard to resist at car boots and jumble sales, and they work so well as lavender bags.
