Lavender Balls !
I've been making these lavender balls for the mothers day stall, for my sons school to help for fundraising. I have posted a blog about making these before, but as I'm making them now I thought I would post about them and show you how to make them, they are very easy to make. I was given an unwanted curtain made from a lavender organza fabric and some pale lavender roses, from Jodie who is on the committee, I had a roll of purple ribbon at home and I grow lavender in my garden and Jodie had some in her garden. As we didn't have enough flowers, I decided to use the leaves as well they are probably for fragrant then the flowers any way. So you cut out the circles fill with lavender, tie with 3 knots and then you can either decorate with roses or leave plain, I think they look lovely both ways . I have made 50 of them so far. Here is the tutorial I have made for you to follow to make your own !They make lovely little gifts !
Make a circle template out of an old magazine
cover,or other scrap paper or light cardboard
16.5 cm diameter or 6 &1/2 inches.
Then cut pieces of ribbon about 14.5 cm or 5 &3/4 inch long.
