Lavender Wheat Bags


A group of us had a craft night a few weeks back & while some made these, I made something else. I decided though that I wanted to make these, so this morning I whipped up 5

They are really easy to make & work wonders in soothing aching muscles or warming up the bed on a cold evening. Next time, I think I will make some with fancier fabric

  • Cotton Fabric – I used flannel as it has a nice feel to it
  • Co-ordinating ribbon – 5 cm lengths
  • 2 cups Wheat
  • 2 tbsp Dried Lavender
  • Matching Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Funnel
  • Sewing Needle – hand

Measure out your fabric 28cm x 30cm & cut it out

Fold your fabric in half, right sides facing inwards. Fold your piece of ribbon in half & position it a few centimetres from the corner on one of the long sides of the fabric with the ribbon loop directed inwards. Tack it in place

Stitch the sides of the fabric using a 1 cm seam allowance & leaving a 5 cm gap on one of the short sides

Clip the corners & turn the bag right side out. Gently press the bag

Use a funnel to add the wheat & lavender. Hand stitch the bag closed using a ladder stitch

If giving as a gift, ensure you give them a tag with the instructions, I have added mine if you want to use it
