Brittany (click here to read her？fantastic blog!) is sharing one of my favorite？things! DIY Lavender Dryer Bags are one of my favorites from Trader Joe’；s! I like using them on our sheets and down comforters.？
Hi， everyone! I’；m really excited to be here guest posting on Kim’；s site？today. My name is Brittany， and I blog about DIY and simple living at by Brittany Goldwyn. Today I am sharing a tutorial about how to make knock-off Trader Joe’；s lavender dryer bags.burlap throw pillow covers
I absolutely love these things–；one bag can be used on multiple dryer loadspersonalized christmas ornaments， and they don’；t use any artificial fragrance. But they are just dried lavender flowers in a bag， so one day it dawned on me that I could make my own for even less than I could buy them for at TJ’；s.
Check out a comparison…；mine is the one on the left…；the TJ’；s one is on the right! And they smell exactly the same.
Here’；s how you make them!
Step 1： Cut 2 pieces of 3 in x 4 in fabric. I used a rotary cutter， which made it super easy to get the edges even.
Step 2： Sew three of the edges shut， making a little pocket.
Step 3： Fill it with 3–4 tbsp of dried lavender flowers and sew the opening shut.
-Use the bags for 5–10 dryer loads. Sometimes I extend mine a few loads by dripping a few drops of essential oil straight on to the bag.
-If you want to avoid cutting and most of the sewing， you can use here. This would be much easier and more economical if you were making a big batch of bags.
-If you want to switch up your scents， eucalyptus leaves， rose petals， and rosemary are all great natural scents that you can use alone or mix and match.
-To make a version of this baggie that you can use for longer than 5–10 times， make a baggie with a sewn-on Velcro closure. When you need to freshen it up， just open it and replace the dried flowers.

What a cute project to make an old winter sweater into cozy toddler pants. When gina from The Daily B sent it over, I begged her to share it with us, and she agreed. Make sure to check out her site The Daily B for more great projects and inspiration. Take it away Gina…I’m sure you have a few sweaters in your closet that are destined for the donation pile. Did you know you can turn them into pants for your little one? This is one of my favorite projects. It’s free, and it only takes about 30 minutes to complete. I thought I’d providea full-fledged tutorial so you can try it at home. Of course, I’m all about winging it, and don’t bother with sewing patterns and pinning, so not every pair of pants I make is perfect (in fact, none of them are). But if you’re willing to accept my tutorial and all its flaws, let’s get started!Get the full Recycled Sweater Pants Tutorial after the jump…
Pillows are cheap and easy to make, and a great way for a beginner to practice his or her sewing skills. If you don't know how to sew, you can try making a fringed, tied pillow instead. Once you know the basics of pillow-making, you can even make an envelope pillowcase!
