Free Crochet Pattern - Lavender Sachets

the sweetest gift

Free Crochet Pattern - Crochet Lavender Sachet | Lululoves Blog #freecrochetpattern #crochet

Hello, I’m popping in today with this super sweet and easy pattern for these lacy crochet lavender pouches. I bought some Scheepjes Cotton with the aim of making some pretty doilies but as I was playing around I kept wondering if I could use it to make some small teachers gifts for the end of term…

I think these make perfect gifts, especially this time of year, as we are right smack in the middle of lavender season here. The crochet pouches tie shut and are made to be re-usable so you can fill them again and again. I absolutely love this idea. I can see these hung in wardrobes or drawers (just like my nan used to), given as gifts, or even as beautiful crochet wedding favours! Like I said, I have made mine for teacher gifts but I will definitely be making myself some to keep beside my bed as they are just to cute not to have on display.

I have written out the pattern below and included how to make the little muslin lavender sachets to put inside them (no sewing required!)

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
