There are few feminine crafts Karen enjoys more than making Lavender Strawberries.They are practical as well a pretty. A Lavender Strawberry will gently sweeten a dresser drawer, a closet or suitcase, the natural, old-fashioned way. Tossed into the clothes dryer, a sachet will last three drying cycles. For subsequent cycles refresh the sachet with a drop of lavender essential oil.
What’s in the Kit?
An assortment of 6 color-complimentary purple and green fabric, satin ribbon, plenty of lavender flowers to fill 4 plump Strawberries, easy-to-follow instructions, illustrated patterns, color photograph. Fabric prints differ from kit to kit and are hand picked by Karen in Pennsylvania Amish Country.
Fabric can be sewn into a cone and stuffed to make a simple ornament. But what Karen calls, Deluxe Strawberries go a step further. They are lined with complimentary fabric. A separate piece – the sachet of flowers - is nestled inside the Strawberry. When the top is tied with ribbon it forms a decorative ruffle.
Only basic sewing skills are needed. Although the entire project can be done by hand, a sewing machine is recommended. You may supplement any home economics course with this sewing kit - for a beautiful girlhood.
