Scented bags

I am sure we have all had this problem. You open your closet and the smell isn’t nice and fresh, it is a little musty. The perfect solution is a scented bag. In shops you pay a fortune for these scented bags, so why not make them yourself!! The advantage is that you can make them in any size you like and stuff them with anything you like (as long as it smells nice ;p). And (if you are into DIY) sewing these bags is a very therapeutic activity.

What do you need?
  • A needle
  • Thread
  • Some pins
  • Fabric (any colour/pattern you like)
  • Dried scented flower (for instance rose, lavender, potpourri etc)
  • Some ribbon

Step 1
Take a piece of fabric and fold it (fold it so that the inside is on the outside).
Use the pins to pin it together, so it will be easier to sew.

Sew along the outer sides of the fabric, but make sure you leave the top open.

Take out the pins (if you haven’t done that already) and turn the little bag inside out.

Step 4
Fill the bag with the dried flowers (of your choosing). And tie the top together with a small ribbon.

There you go! Bye-bye musty closet!!!!
