Lavender-Filled Handkerchief Sachet (An excerpt from Lavender Sensations)
Pretty embroidered or lace-edged handkerchiefs make attractive sachets for lingerie drawers. Make several to give as gifts.
Place about 1 tablespoon of dried lavender buds in the center of a handkerchief. Gather the corners together and tie a narrow satin ribbon just above the bundle of lavender to secure.
For a stronger scent and a larger sachet, add several drops of lavender fragrance oil to a cotton ball and place it in the center of the handkerchief with the dried lavender buds. Draw up the corners of the handkerchief and secure with a narrow satin ribbon.
