How to Make Lavender Pillows

Words can not express how much I love the scent of lavender!  The scent of lavender seems to brighten my mood instantly.  I found this craft idea at the Martha Stewart website which I have revised a little bit.  I think this would also make a great Christmas gift!

To make a small pillow ~ the top is a 4 ½” and the largest ~ 7” x 15”.

To make one, cut two pieces of fabric to the same size.  Sew the fabric pieces together, right sides facing, leaving a 2” to 3” opening on one side, depending on how well you hand sew.  Clip the corners diagonally and turn the fabric right side out.  Fill the pillow with dried lavender (which you can find at your local health store) and if you’d, flax seeds to cut down on the lavender scent.  This can be revised in so many ways, as in several shapes and sizes to use as neck rolls, small throw pillows or sachets.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
