very simple, easy to make gifts
To make the lavendar bag look through your fabric stash and find some pretty offcuts. You will also need short lengths of lace and ribbon.
You will need dried lavender too.
Gather all your bits together and cut out a heart shape in paper. Use this to cut out two pieces of fabric.
Machine stitch the two pieces right sides together, trim and clip all curves. Press.
Turn right sides out and lightly stuff with toy stuffing adding a large spoonful of lavender
