Mother's Day Embroidered Lavender Sachets

By: Becky Kazana of

Follow this tutorial from Becky Kazana to create a beautiful, embroidered lavender sachet for Mother's Day. You can buy lavender in bulk and make many of these sachets with different embroidery designs. Give as gifts all year.

  • scrap fabric
  • iron
  • sewing machine (you COULD hand sew, but these are time consuming as is...your call.)
  • bulk lavender
  • silk embroidery thread,
  • small embroidery hoop and needle


Scrap Fabric

Let's get started, shall we? First, cut your scrap fabric into a rectangle. Mine is roughly 4.5 x9", but make a size that works for you.


Iron your rectangle in two.

Iron in half

Then fold in the two raw edges at the ends and press them too.

These will be your finished edges.

Finished Edges

Use a pencil to draw out a simple design. I put mine directly on the fabric for minimal fuss.

Lavender Sachet

The embroidery is the most time consuming part, so keep your design simple. I used no more than three colors for maximum impact and minimal hassle.

Iron Embroidery

Now you'll want to press out the hoop imprint.

There we are! Nice and crisp.

Sewing Sachet

Turn your handiwork inside out. Use your sewing machine to make two neat seams along both raw sides.

Inside Out

Trim Away Excess

Next, trim away any excess fabric and threads. I like to snip the corners at diagonals which gives a tidier looking corner.

Right Side Out

Now turn it right side out again. (And suddenly your embroidery design has magically transformed into something more elaborate! Kidding Kidding- I just lost track of my photos in the process of documenting all these steps! So we've switched from lavender embroidery to tulips and violets. You get the idea.)

Filling Sachet


Gently fill your sachet. You want it plump, but not overflowing. Close with a straight pin.

One more pass on the sewing machine, snip off the extra thread and...

Ta Da! You've just made a pretty sweet smelling gift for Mother's Day. (Or any gal who likes sweet smelling things.) I use sachets in all my drawers, and love to toss them in my luggage when I'm traveling so things stay smelling fresh even when less than so.
