Scrap Happy August.

14.8.16 001

I had wonderful fun this month with my fabric scraps, creating a crazy patchwork lavender cushion/ sachet. Here’s a close up.

Some of the scraps are really small. I cut each with pinking shears and machine stitched in place. The wadding is held in place with the buttons. Somehow I managed to add lace and a backing. Then I filled it with the dried lavender from the garden. Finally adding a ribbon and button.

You can just see a tiny piece of the flower fairies fabric.

I think I enjoyed this scrappy project the most, as it was pure play. It’s now going into my meomys drawer!

    lovely ^^
    I’ve been lucky enough to have received over 1 kilo of lavender from a friend who literally has a field full. So I’ll be making some larger lavender cushions over the next few days.

  8. I need to dig back into my sewing room, well, at least after the move to Indy. Trying to sew right now would likely put me over the edge! Too much to do to idle my time in the sewing room.

  9. This is very dainty and will make everything smell so fresh

  10. There is nothing to beat a fresh lavender bag, and this one’s so sweet and pretty – and wonderfully scrappy! Welcome back to ScrapHappy, hope to see you more often 🙂

  11. Pretty. Reminds me I need to make some bags for my lavender.

  12. Pretty, and fresh scent in your cupboard
