Did You Know Flies Hate Lavender?

This is my main motivation for learning now to make lavender sachets, I hate flies. Living in the country near farm land means flies. They drive me mad, however lavender is proving useful in our fight against keeping flies out of the house. We use lavender spray to spray around the doors and these handy little lavender bags hang off the back door handles to help keep pests away.

And its working! Yes we still get the odd stray fly, but the numbers are most definitely lower.

Step By Step How To Make Lavender Sachets

Prepare Your Lavender

Cut a good handful of lavender leaves and stems or flowers and chop them into a bowl before adding a hand-full of rice. For me this saves the time of drying out the lavender and works equally well, just ensure you have a ration of at least 1/3 lavender to 2/3 rice.

Also Prepare Your Fabric

Iron the fabric to ensure it is crease free. I use my easy press mini for this, although you could just use a traditional iron.

Create A Template In Cricut Design Space

In Cricut Design Space search in images for a scalloped circle. I found this shape, however the inner circle was the shape I wanted which was a blank space.

To use this space, grab a square from the left hand shape bar and pull it over the shape but so it sits inside of the outer shape and click slice, this will slice out the inner void to create the shape you want.

Once you have your scalloped circle you now need to add perforations to weave your ribbon through.

Choose a circle from the shape bar on the left hand side of Cricut Design Space and put it in the position where you want your perforations to be for your homemade Cricut lavender sachets.

Now choose a square from the shape bar, unlock it and drag into a small oblong like the ones below.

Simple place your first oblong in place and, right click and duplicate to get your next and keep going until you have created a circle shape like the one below.

Now discard the inner circle and drag your scalloped circle out of the way. Now you are just left with the circle made of dashes. Right click and select weld in the bottom right corner of design space.

Once the dashes are all welded together drag and position over your scalloped circle, right click and select slice to slice these dashes into your shape. You will be left with a ready to cut image like the template below.
