-Iron on Fusing Web
-Ironing Board, or Ironing pad, and Iron
-Measuring Spoons (optional, but makes it easier to insert into your sachets), or disposable spoon, or spoon specifically used when mixing essential oils
-Scrap string, ribbon or yarn to tie around a set of sachets if gifting (optional)
-lavender essential oil (optional)
I use a travel size iron and ironing pad for craft projects. I can place this on a kitchen counter, table or other smaller area to work.
I also grow lavender, but you can purchase it.
Fusing web can be found in different lengths, widths and brands. I picked up this brand, as we have a long drive to larger craft stores.
1. Iron fabric if needed and cut 2 squares the same size for each sachet. I cut mine approximately 4 x 4 inches. Both sides do not have to match. It's all about putting use to scrap fabric.2. Cut 4 pieces of fusing web for each side and place on the backside of one piece of fabric. Heat your iron and place second piece of fabric on top with right side up.
3. Using the iron, press 3 sides to seal the fusing web. Allow to cool and insert rice and lavender into the open side. Add any amount you would like. I used about 1 Tbsp. rice and 2 tsp. lavender. If you add too much, you will have trouble sealing the 4th edge.
Note: You can add a drop or two of lavender essential oil to your rice (or mix rice and oil in a bowl prior to starting this project and have it ready when needed).4. Using pinking sheers, trim each side. Note: You can add hangers for hanging these if preferred, but I just tucked them into dresser drawers and placed them on closet shelving.
That's it! These made nice homemade Christmas gifts, or gifts in general.
