Set your fabric into your embroidery hoop.
Following basic stitches, embroider your picture onto your fabric. taking care to keep picture on the top third of the fabric. Allowing for space for a top seam and bow.
Fold top seam inward, pin down and sew a straight seam line. Do the same on both sides.
Folding the fabric inwards with embroidered picture on the inner side, pin the side seams and sew.
Unfold sachet inside out and pull out corners for a tidy finish.
Fill the lavender sachet with the dried lavender. About two thirds full. Cut string, twine or ribbon and make a bow toe at the top seam.
