More Lavender Bags

Here they are again, in a new guise!

My faithful collaborator Loretta has been hard at work at the sewing machine, making dozens more lavender bags. 

We discovered that 6/7 kilos of hand gathered and shucked lavender seeds go a long, long way,. 

Finally,  after much thought and preparation we now have lots of chubby sachets ready 
to perfume and protect 
dozens of wardrobes, drawers keep away silverfish and moths and impart a delicious aroma.

We might as well take orders; our production 
resembles that of a cottage industry!

We're quite proud of this simple but stylish design, which was created by Loretta herself. 

The bags are in double-layered white organza and white and ecru muslin.
