Make Your Own Scented Dryer Sachets

As the rain continues to fall – I decided a good afternoon project would be to make my own dryer sachets.  This is the time of year that I usually put my clothes line up, but haven’t done it yet.  Each time that I go to do the laundry it has been raining.  I have wanted to make some dryer sachets, especially since I have so much dried chamomile.  I read somewhere that if you put in flax seeds that it would cut the static cling – so figured why not try it.

Scented Dryer Sachets

Items needed

Cotton fabric scraps, lone socks, old t-shirts
Dried lavender, chamomile, rose, geranium
Flax seeds
Sewing machine (optional)
Matching thread
Pinking sheers (optional)

1. Pull out scrap material and iron.

2. Cut (2) two 5″ x 5″ squares from each fabric.

3. Placing wrong sides together – sew around the edges, leaving an opening to put the dried flowers inside.  If you are going to cut the fabric with pinking sheers leave enough fabric to do so.  I chose to use the sewing machine.

4. If you want this would be the time to trim with pinking sheers.

5. Mix 3/4 cup of dried flowers with 1/4 flax seeds.

Dried Lavender from the garden

Chamomile, lavender and flax







6. Fill the bags and then sew up seam.

7. Depending on how often you do laundry and how full you filled them, each sachet should last 3 – 6 months.  Squeeze several times before tossing into the dryer to release the fragrance.

      Yes they would. I was really surprised that by adding the flax that there was no static in the clothes! Super easy and not time to make.
