You’ll need:

  • thin cotton fabric scraps – I used batiste and (UK) muslin
  • lace scraps
  • dried lavender flowers – or dried sweet clover, sweet grass or woodruff
  • needle and thread
  • scissors

Bullion flowers

I made square lavender sachets, but you can also make them round etc. Make the lavender sachets as large or small as you like.

Embroidery

I embellished the lavender sachets with hand embroidery such as drawn thread work and bermuda fagoting which were both popular in the Edwardian era.


Bermuda fagoting

Bermuda Fagoting

Bermuda fagoting is a really pretty stitch and fast to make.

I used bermuda fagoting to attach bobbin lace: Just work the stitch through the holes of the lace.

Drawn-Thread Work

Drawn-thread work takes a bit longer than bermuda fagoting, but it’s equally pretty.

Hand-Sewn Lavender Sachets

I used another layer of muslin behind the lace and embroidery.

With right sides together, sew around the lavender sachets with running stitches and an occasional backstitch. Leave a small opening and turn the lavender sachets inside out.

Using a funnel, fill the lace sachets with dried lavender flowers.

Sew the opening closed with ladder or overhand stitches. And if you want, sew lace around the lavender sachets with overhand stitches.
