Lavender bags

Using the lavender I'd dried from the garden last year, I made some lavender bags as thank you gifts for the teacher and assistants in Joseph's nursery.

Tied them in brown paper and string and they were good to go. Just hope they like the smell of lavender :)

As parents we're really grateful that Joseph has had such a lovely environment to go to as he starts his educational life. He's had his off days and down right bad days but over the past five terms he has really grown up and they had nothing but praise for the way he's developed. In particular, they love to hear him sing, he sings with gusto and is heard above the rest. Mrs R said she hopes he won't lose this enthusiasm for singing as he gets older.

Classic Joseph cheeeeeeeeeese photo :)


  1. Love it!

    I keep meaning to make some type of lavender bag, eye bag, heat bag, etc.

    what did you use for filler?


  2. I used half dried lavender, half rice/dried lentils and I also added a few drops of lavender essential oil to the mix to enhance the fragrance. Need to make some for myself :)

    Thanks for commenting :)
