Following on from my previous post about sustainable sewing, I'm sharing the first in a range of tips and tutorials that link to the ideas in that blogpost. First up is an idea for using fabric scraps. I had some leftover pieces of Liberty Tana Lawn fabric from a previous project. They are too beautiful to throw away and of course, that wouldn't be good for the environment. The scraps are roughly 3 inches by 4 inches but you could use any size pieces.
I had some lavender in organza bags that I got free when I purchased some wool. However, dried lavender is readily available if you need to purchase some, or perhaps you could dry some from your garden or a friend's? If you don't have organza bags, you could put the lavender straight into the pillow with the stuffing but the organza makes it less likely to spill. Click here to watch the full video tutorial on how to make these lovely lavender pillows. Happy sewing!
