Through my journey of making all. the. quilt. coats, I found myself with a lot of small scraps. I didn’t want to waste these, so I started creating ways to use them up! These quilted lavender sachets are a great scrapbuster! They’re super fast, easy to make, and only need the smallest scraps. Once you use this DIY lavender sachets tutorial, you’ll want to make a whole bunch more!

If you don’t have quilted scraps ready to go, you can quilt up your own using scrap fabric and batting. Better yet, pull out an orphan block and quilt it up! It is a great time to practice free-motion or walking foot quilting motifs too! You can also make these with non-quilted fabric, too!
For these DIY Lavender Sachets, you’ll need…
- (2) 3.5″ x 4.5″ quilted scraps
- Dried Lavender Buds
DIY Lavender Sachets:
1. Zig-zag around the edges of your quilted pieces. This will make them easier to sew together and keep any rice or lavender buds from getting between the fabric layers.
2. Put your fabric right sides together.
3. Stitch all the way around with a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving an opening on one of the small sides for turning.
4. Turn your sachet right side out, poking out the corners. Give it a good press.
5. Fill your sachet. I used 2 tbsp of rice and 1 tbsp of lavender buds. It isn’t overly stuffed, so for a stronger lavender scent, use 2 tbsp rice and 2 tbsp lavender. You can also add a few drops of essential oils, but use these sparingly as they can be quite strong!
6. Pin or clip the opening shut, then stitch it closed, either by machine or by hand. If stitching by hand, I recommend the ladder stitch.
Enjoy! Your little lavender sachet is complete!
