Rainbow Herb Scented Drawer Sachets

By

Scented lavender sachets may remind you of your Nanna’s hankie drawer, but just because they’ve been around forever doesn’t mean they have to look old fashioned. Ditch the floral prints and make a pile of crochet edged rainbow hued sachets instead. I’ve been a little obsessed with Black & White gingham contrasted with bright colours lately, and thought it would…
