DIY Goodbye Stinky Shoes Sachet Tutorial from Small Good Things here. This can be used in drawers, shoes etc… Emi also lists a link to a tutorial she made for a sachet for really stinky shoes that I posted last winter here. One holiday season I gave shoe bags (yes they sound boring but make great practical gifts that can be made with fun fabrics and used for jewelry, etc…) and these would be a good addition.
DIY Lavender Eye Pillows. This tutorial also shows you how to run linen through your printer (although I’d probably use iron-on color-fast ink jet printer cloth), and I would also stick with flax seed and not rice. Also posting because this has an expensive boutique look to it and you could use muslin (with liner) instead of linen. Tutorial at Centsational Girl here.
DIY Lavender Sachets/Cushions. Love this idea and have done it in the past using muslin (super super cheap) and lace. I put mint in drawers and they last for years. Lovely present idea. Tutorial from Twigg Studios here.
DIY Shoe Sachets or Goodbye to Stinky Shoes. Love this tutorial because I’ve given those really strong horrible smelling plastic ball shaped “sneaker fresheners” as stocking stuffers. These are a good alternative and use cheap baking soda and specific essential oils found everywhere. Tutorial at Small Good Things here: Part I (making simple fabric pouch) Part II (making stuff to go inside).
DIY Lavender Sachet Houses (but really ornaments or whatever you want). From my favorite go-to felt site (she has the most beautiful handmade felt Etsy store ever if you like rainbows of color): Bugs and Fishes with the tutorial here. There is a simple pattern for the house at the bottom, as well as detailed instructions in the tutorial.
