The scent of lavender is so calming and relaxing, don't you agree?
Lately I have been making several sachets to tuck in places around my home.
A cross for Easter seemed like a good idea since it will be visible to those that visit my home.
I am so grateful for what the cross represents -
Christ's willingness to pay the penalty for my sin
so that I might have salvation and eternal life.
"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."
~ Hebrews 12:2 ~
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
~ Romans 1:16 ~
So I made a couple lavender sachets in the shape of a cross.
Cut out two pieces of fabric in the shape of a cross with pinking shears.
Mine were about 4 inches long so the sachets are small.
I then cut out two more pieces of lace fabric to put over the pink cotton fabric.
Sew along the edges and leave an opening at the bottom so you can fill the cross with dried lavender.
It helps to hold the sachet over a bowl so you don't get lavender all over :)
Use something pointy, but dull, to push the lavender into the side of the cross.
Then finish sewing the bottom.
You can apply ribbon to your cross.
I used hot glue to put the bow on and added a pearl.
