Lavender & Herb-Filled Mug Mat (An excerpt from Lavender Sensations)

Keep this mug mat on your desk to rest your warm coffee or tea mug. The energizing scent from this herbal blend will help keep you alert. Make several to give to friends and co-workers.

2 (5”) squares of cotton print or homespun fabric
3 tablespoons dried lavender buds
2 tablespoons dried peppermint leaves
2 tablespoons dried sage leaves
2 teaspoons dried, grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons flaxseed for filler

Using a 1/4” seam allowance, sew the two cotton fabric squares together, right sides facing each other, around three sides of the square. Turn the bag right side out.

In a small bowl, blend the herbs and filler together. Pour the mixture into the fabric bag. Turn under the raw edges of the open end of the bag 1/4” and stitch the opening closed.
