How to turn odd socks into lovely lavender sachets:
- Gather together all the odd socks* left over after you've had a clear out, and ensure they are all clean before you start.
- Use a dessert spoon to fill each sock with dried lavender (or you could use mixture of lavender and dried rice). Ask your four-year-old to help you with this for extra fun and educational value!
- Tightly tie up the top of the sock using narrow ribbon.
So there you go, low cost and almost instant lavender sachets made from otherwise useless odd socks - and no sewing machine required.
These lavender sachets are particularly good for putting in shoes to freshen them up a bit. I've put two of them in my red sandals (see photo below) and now the hall cupboard smells lovely.
* Where do all the odd socks come from? No matter what I do, we always seem to end up with some lone socks!
