Lavender ideas :: How to make lavender sachets

Yesterday I had the chance to spend a lovely sunny afternoon tending to my garden. Last year, against local advice I planted some lavender bushes in my front garden. I was told that they would struggle to grow in the Brisbane climate, however, mine are growing wild and are in need of a bit of a trim.

So I started looking for ideas on how to dry my lavender flowers and stumbled across these pretty lavender ideas and images.

I then started to look at how to make lavender bags and found these great ideas. These printed little linen fabric bags with stamped owl images look great for children's wardrobes.

I would love to know if anyone else grows lavender in Brisbane? Have fun.
