Determine what size you would like your sachet to be and add about 1/2-inch to each side. Cut two pieces of fabric with this measurement (my larger bag is approximately 4” x 7”). Lay the two pieces of fabric so that the right sides are facing each other.
Pin the two pieces together to hold them in place. Start by finishing the top of your sachet. Fold down the fabric at one end, folding down by about 1/2-inch.
Sew a straight stitch across the folded fabric.
This will hide any frayed or jagged fabric edges inside the sachet. Repeat this process for the second top edge.
Sew a straight stitch through both pieces of fabric to close the sides and bottom, creating the sachet.
Remove the straight pins as you go.
The only end left open should be the top of the bag. Trim off all excess hanging threads.
Turn the fabric inside out.
Iron the fabric to remove any wrinkles.
Tuck herbs inside the sachet. For this one I used fresh rosemary which is very fragrant.
In another, smaller sachet I used dried lavender buds.
Simply tuck them inside the sachet and tie it closed with ribbon or twine.
These make wonderful gifts and can be made in about 30-40 minutes.
