Homemade Lavender fabric pouches (& a bit of culture)

This little project is perfect for small sweet gifts to fit into any type of card.
This is also great for those pieces of scrap fabric and ribbon.
Each little pouch has a different front and back.

The little story of how my lavender fabric pouches came to be:
Circumcision is quite an event here. It is kind of like a coming of age party for the boys. Usually they have the party for the boys around age 7or 8. We are being invited to several these days because so many of Autty's little class mates are of that age. No, my daughter has no real understanding of these parties, she just thinks it is unfair that the boys get these parties and the girls don't. :) So as we have attended a few circumcision parties as of late, I have found that lavender is a popular thing to give to the guests. Who knew? Usually the lavender is in some sort of vellum pouch, so it got me to thinking. I decided to go find myself some lavender, figuring it couldn't be that expensive. 
I have been able to make 8 fabric pouches with this bag of lavender and I think I can easily get 2 more out of it.  So that is 1 lira (.65cents) for 10 sweetly scented pouches. Oh the things you can learn at circumcision parties. Love it!

Here is a pic of us at one of Autty's friends circumcision party. 

Two little kids and a bunch of tiny little flowers, equals a need for concentration. 

Sweetly placed in a drawer to make you smile. 

Off I go sewing up a little storm of lavender pillows, sachets, pouches etc.

Smelling sweetly here in our west corner,

Ps. Please keep your eyes open for the giveaway planned this month. Also I have finally got a Facebook page up a running..feel free to find me there. :)

Oh, how I miss having some of these in my closet and drawers! My grandma used to make them often and I always seemed to have a few.

Almost the end of your 21 days! Mine finishes today - I'm so happy I've made it and really feel like I'm in a new 'tidy' habit!
