White cotton, cheese cloth, ribbons and lavender are the basic essentials for this project.
My hubbie colored it in with his Bamboo sketching pad, adding color and dimension to the design.
Notice the great ribbon I found AFTER the design was done.
How cool is that?
The cotton is a great weight and light enough to allow the scent of the lavender to pass through without any of the seeds falling out.
Lay out your printing to maximize your design on the fabric.
I did mine at 16 vignettes per page.
Print and heat set with a hot iron.
2 Cotton squares 4″ x 4″
1 Cheesecloth square 3″x 3″
1 Open weave ribbon 4″
1 Decorative ribbon 6″
Layer the complete top layer only.
Leaving off one 4″ x 4″ cotton square and the 6″ decorative ribbon.
Stitch around the edge 1/8″ in to hold all layers together. See where the pin is.
Stitch around three sides at 1/2″ leaving the top edge undone.Pour in 1 tablespoon of fresh lavender.
Cloves or cinnamon sticks would be a great alternatives.
Stitch across the top through all layers.
These would make great gifts for wedding party favors, birthday party’s, house warming, or just plan fun.
