Lavender bags

Which comes first - fabric or inspiration?

Sometimes it's neither!

Sometimes it's as simple as someone giving me a huge bag of locally grown dried lavender.

Then I find the fabric.

Then I find the ribbon.

Then I decide on what shape to make the bags.  If I'm making something with a heritage, I always like to know if there are any particular traditional shapes associated.  But it seems there weren't with lavender bags.

So as the fabric was cherries, I thought I'd make the first bag in a sort of bowl shape and call it 'Life'.

Then I made a square one too.

They smell really yummy!

I have enough lavender to create a whole host of other items too - watch this space :)
