You know when you have an idea and it comes together perfectly? I have to admit, that doesn’t always happen with me, but this time it did! I found the cutest seed packet fabric at Joann’s in the remnants and knew exactly what I would do with it. And you can see above, they turned out SO fun! I made little lavender sachets that are going to make awesome stocking stuffers for Christmas.
They are SO simple to make! Let me show you how you can whip them up in no time flat. And did I mention how wee they are? Totally adds to the cuteness factor! And makes them perfect for stashing in your sock or delicates drawer.

Cut out seed packets from the fabric leaving approximately 1/4″ extra fabric from edges. Cut matching pieces of backing fabric from the solid cotton. You can cut large pieces of the fabric, not adhering to the seed packet shapes. I did this with some of the “scraps”.
Stack each seed packet with it’s matching backing fabric, right sides facing each other. Stitch around the edges of the seed packet lines with a sewing machine, leaving a 1/2″ opening in the bottom (see arrow above).
Pull the fabric right side out through the hole. Make sure all of the corners are nice and square. Iron if needed.
This lavender has a great, strong smell! That being said, the room where you use it will smell strongly of lavender for hours and hours. Just something to be aware of!
I wish I could fill each one with the coordinating floral smell, but I’ll settle for the lavender.
These are great gift ideas for your favorite gardener, but really will be well received by just about everyone!
