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
Cotton fabric scraps, lone socks, old t-shirts
Dried lavender, chamomile, rose, geranium
Sewing machine (optional)
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.
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.
