Yarn Ball Lavender Bags by Shirley Rainbow

Yarn Ball Lavender Bags by Shirley Rainbow
Love this



Super cute and cheery lavender bags to make putting laundry away so much more fun. Pop them in with your yarn stash to ward away pesky moths. Or if you don’t want to tidy them away on a coat hanger, why not hang them near your bed and the lavender scent will promote a good nights sleep.

Each lavender bag is made out of wool felt, and hand stitched which makes each one unique. Each yarn ball is hand embroidered with variegated thread, then hand sewn together and filled with organic lavender. I then stitch the ball band with its cheeky smiling face into place.

The Yarn Balls are each approximately 8cm / 3.25” long x 4.5cm / 1.75” wide.

Price is for 1 lavender bag.

You can make a colour choice from the drop down box. If you cannot see the colour in the list of choices unfortunately it has sold out.

Your lavender bag will be posted out to you wrapped in tissue and popped in a letter box friendly cardboard box.


I first started making the lavender bags as a way to use up small scraps of felt and fabric I had left over from larger projects. Lavender growing in my parent’s garden has been added to the filling. I have really enjoyed creating the different styles, and I’ve been so pleased with how popular they have been, and all the kind comments I have received.
