  • Scented pillows

    Does anyone make small scented pillowa, the kind you'd use for scenting drawers?

    I want to make some as stocking fillers - are there any good tutorials out there?

    Yes I make them, have some on my site not sure if this is what you mean. Just cut two pieces of fabric the size of the finished pillow plus a seam allowance, stitch around leaving a small opening on one side to turn. Turn and stuff with fibrefill and pot-pourri, slip stitch opening closed.

      Yes, like the ones on your wesbite.

      How long does the scent last (I'm wondering how far in advance of a craft fair I should make them)? And where do I get fibrefill (I should probably just buy them from your site....!)

        I usually get mine from Hobbycraft and if you put in a plastic sealed bag, until you sell them, the scent lasts about a year.

            These have pretty good instructions - but may not be what you're looking for...

              Bad memories: I was brought up by an eldelry grandmother who seemed to believe that unless she put lavender bags in every drawer in the house moths would eat every scrap ov material and we would have to go around naked. I think I would have preferred that. As a young lad of 9 + 10, going to school smelling strongly of lavender was not a pleasant experience. Now if she had used curry powder or something it wouldn't have been too bad.
