Lavender bags can be 'sew' fun

Use recycled clothes to make a bag that smells great.


  1. Place a side plate on your piece of fabric and draw round it.
  2. Cut out the circle using pinking shears to create a zigzag edge.
  3. Now draw another circle, 3cm smaller in diameter and on the wrong side of the fabric.
  4. Using a needle and thread, sew a really loose running stitch along the line you have drawn.
  5. Put a tablespoon of lavender in the middle of the circle and pull the tread to draw up the stitches.
  6. Tie a piece of ribbon in a bow around the middle as a pretty finishing touch
