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.
