Lavender Baskets


Lavender baskets are fragrant, pretty, and easy to make. This one took me about an hour to create. After it dries, the flowers will retain their lavender appearance and will make a pretty addition to home decor throughout the winter months.

  4. Thank you so much for the tutorial!That is absolutely beautiful ~ now I'm going to have to go and find some lavender. There was a lavender farm close to us when we lived in England and I loved driving through that village ~ the fragrance was fabulous.

  7. Dear Gracious, How inspiring you are. Today I documented the sewing of four pair of shorts for Dash Hawk, assembly line style. I have not posted it yet for I have not gotten the project compleated. I loved shared knowledge. Remember the elders and the quilting bees of yore. Your blog is reminiscent of it. I have gained affiliation at the idea of sharing what I know and have learned during my 25 yr marriage.

  11. How lovely. I've made lavendar wands in the past but I had never heard of a lavendar basket. I will definitely have to give it a try. I've read that in victorian times, lavendar was used often for crafting. It's quite wonderful to see it's crafty usefulness continue on. Thank you.
