Lavender Pillow

Materials:(makes 1)
Top - 8-inch square of material. Chose any type you wish.
Back - 8-inch square of material. This should be a cotton or muslin as it breathes; however, using the same material as the top will work
Two 6 inch square muslin or cotton or cheesecloth
1/4 to 1/2 cup of dried lavender flowers.

Sew 6-inch squares on three sides. Fill with lavender and sew fourth side.
Pillow Case:
With good sides facing each other, sew the 8-inch squares on three sides. Press and clip corners. Fold open side back 1/4 inch (wrong sides of material together) to make a casing and press. Fold casing again and sew in place. Press. DO NOT SEW END SHUT. Turn pillowcase right side out. Press. Attach 2 or 3 small snaps evenly across opening. Insert lavender pillow. Snap closed. Place under your pillow for a good night's sleep or in your linen closet between the sheets.
NOTE: The end of the pillow case is not sewn shut in order for you to replace the lavender pillow with a fresh pillow in the future or, renew the scent with a drop or two of Lavender essential oil.
