Lovely Lavender Crochet Sachets

Crochet Sachets

I am so excited because I planted  lavender in my little garden this year. The smell of lavender is so clean, calming and pretty to me. These little sachets are filled with lavender flowers, but you could make them with your favorite herb or scent. These special little pouches are going to be included with a wedding gift, but I think they would make a thoughtful thank you gift as well, don’t you? I love putting sachets in my drawers and closets, so feel free to gift me a sachet anytime.  Maybe I  just need to make some for myself. Ha ha! 🙂

Crochet Sachet


These are made so that you can untie the top, and remove the sachet once the smell runs out.  You could put a new sachet in the bag or use the baggie to hold any little things from around the house.

You will need:

Size F Crochet Hook

1 Small bag of dried lavender (find online, or at a natural foods or herb store)

Optional: Lavender essential oil ( I put a couple of drops on the flowers before putting them in the sachet. It makes the smell stronger, and last longer)

Small amount of muslin or cotton fabric OR little cotton goodie bags from your local party store

Worsted weight yarn for the pouch ( I used Berroco Cotton/Alpaca yarn )

For the roses –

Small amount worsted weight yarn in contrast colors

I used Lily Sugar N Cream for the buds, and Lion Brand Modern Baby for the Grey “greenery” underneath

See my post HERE for how to make the roses


These little bags are made from the bottom up. The bottom is simply crocheted in the round. If you’ve never crocheted in the round, I suggest you check out YouTube and see how easy it is.  They work up really fast, and are a wonderful little project to use up your scrap yarn.

My pretty little lavender plant.

How to Make the Sachet Pouch”Pattern”:

With your size F hook, Chain 2

Round 1 Single crochet 6 times in second chain from hook

Round 2 Single crochet 12 times around (2 sc in each sc around)

Round 3 *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc * Repeat from * to * around (18 stitches around)

Round 4 *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* Repeat from * to * around (24 stitches around)

Starting the sides:

Round 1 Single crochet in back loop around (24 sc) (This will create the sides)

Round 2- end Single crochet around (no longer in back loop) until height of bag reaches approximately 3 inches.

Tie off, weave in all ends.

The pouch for the sachet

Making tie on top:

Take a length of yarn about 8 inches long, and place it through your tapestry needle.

Weave tapestry needle in and out of crochet holes, two stitches down from the top. Put through the bottom of the rose once you reach the point where you will tie it off. Pull the length of yarn, and tie in a loose knot.  Tuck the ends in to the top of the bag.  You can also choose to simply tie the rose on by itself, which is the easier option. Tie the bag however you would like, it may even be cute with a bow tie. Don’t forget to put your sachet insert inside! See below how to make that….

Make the sachet insert:

Lavender, scissors and fabric for the insert.

I had the idea of buying little cotton goodie bags that I have seen for sale in order to avoid sewing. So if you don’t sew, you can still make these. My machine is all set up, so I decided to just sew some little sachets. Here is how:

Cut two pieces of cotton fabric into 4×4 inch squares

Line up the squares, sew three sides

Fill bag with lavender, and sew fourth side closed

My little bag of lavender that will go inside the crochet pouch

Place your lavender insert into the pouch and tie off. You might want to make it look fuller, so could put some little cut strands of fabric to “fill” the bag.

I hope you enjoy making, and gifting your sachets. Do you use sachets, and what is your favorite scent?

  1. Oh, you really got me on this one! I’ve loved sachets since I’ve been a little girl. My mother always had them in drawers at home. And add to that the wonderful aroma of lavender —- Oh, does it get any better? I think not. Thank you for sharing this lovely idea. I’m on my way to my craft room right now! Thanks again for all your great ideas that you share.

    1. Hi Carol,
      I love hearing stories and memories like yours! How wonderful to have had sachets in your drawers at home when you were a small girl. You are right, it doesn’t get any better than the lovely aroma of lavender. Thanks for taking the time to share this, Carol. You are more than welcome for the ideas, it’s fun for me to share and post my projects. 🙂

  2. These are simply beautiful and all of us ladies would love these as gifts. They make you feel special just smelling the lavender. I like the idea of giving them as a gesture of “thanks” or included as a special extra in any gift or simply the gift itself. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for the kind words! So glad that tou think they’d make a great gift too. 🙂

  3. Love these little bags. I have recycled used dryer sheets to put the dried lavender in but they are not pretty. This solved that problem. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Well, that’s a quick and easy idea for sachets! Love it…thanks for sharing.

  4. I love lavender. In fact, I collected lavender soaps, the hand crafted ones you can purchase at the farmer’s markets and street fairs, to put in my linen closet with the sheets and towels. They always smelled so good. Then about 15 years ago or so, I started buying little lavender sachets for my lingerie drawer (smells good too!) One of the best sachets I have is from the annual Lavender Festival in Sequim, Washington. It is filled with lavender buds and all I do is press on the sachet to release more fragrance. I have had that one for 9 years now and it is still going strong. The fragrance has not diminished! I want to try your little bags. They would make wonderful small gifts, remembrances really, for friends. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Linda,
      You’re welcome!
      I am going to go squeeze or press my bags to see if that works for me as well! I like your idea of buying the lavender soaps as well….sometimes soap scents seem to last for a really long time! I didn’t know there was such a thing as a lavender festival. Sure wish they had one in Colorado. 😉

  5. From Belgium

  6. I love these, so cute and a great little just because gift! I am just not getting the pattern, I don’t know why I crochet all the time, but I don’t see how you round shape, I don’t understand where you ss to make it a circle Sorry for such a silly question but I really want to make these thank you so much

  7. love these! I am having a senior moment and I have crocheted in the round before, but I can’t see where the first slip stich is and what I would crochet after it, would it be a chain 2? I am sorry for my silly question but I really want to make these and I just don’t get it. Thank you so much for helping me. Lisa

  8. Hi Lisa!
    I’m so glad you like these! So to crochet in the round, you chain two, then crochet 6 single crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook. You then continue to single crochet around (following the pattern – round two is 12 sc around) and you can place a marker for each round if that helps you. You might want to just hop on YouTube and watch how to crochet in the round. I do better with learning from videos! Hope this helps, let me know if I can help any further.

  9. Would love so much to learn how to crochet and make these as gifts. I don’t understand the abreviations or crochet lingo (I guess you would call it…lol), but willing to learn. Also I am left handed. I am sure that could change how to learn the art of how to crochet as well. I am determined to learn though. At the age of 69Ifive think it is time. Don’t you? ….lol

    1. Of course you can learn, Diana! Go to youtube and type in “how to crochet with left hand”. Guaranteed there will be some great videos. This is the way that I learned not long ago!

    2. Diana I found a crochet site All her patterns are written for righthand crochet as well as lefthand crochet Go to Meladora creations for crochet She is also on G+ Good luck Crochet really is fun I’m 69 and have been crocheting for about 64 years My mom taught us Regards Esme Smuts South Africa

  11. Thank you for sharing the wonderful pattern.I also learn so many things from others who are interacting with you.Thanks again.–Bani.

  12. Love Love Love these sachet bags. My late Mom used to LOVE fragrance around her and I didnt know anything about making sachet bags so i took 2 doilies with one of the small frames for needlepoint, I layed one doily face down on the “inside frame..a plastic bag with the lavender and put a few drops of oil from a candle shop. Then i covered the baggie ( filling it so it would “mound up” then laid the other doily on top with good side up..pushed the other frame down (I used an oval shape with a gorgeous doily that are really cheap. Decorated the top with a hanging ribbon and sm. Flower and bows and just poked holes through the front of the baggie with a toothpick to release the scent into her bedroom. The pair hung on her wall for years and was so easy to pop the frames apart to refill the potpourri into whatever scent you wanted. Could also change the scent by the baggie inside. Just an fyi because i didnt know about making these bags. Thank You so much this pattern! They are beautiful!

    1. What an incredible and creative idea! How sweet of you to do that for your mom. Ingenius to put them in the needlepoint hoops. Thank you so much for sharing how you did it. Wonderful, Lynn!

      1. I have noticed on this site that a box keeps showing up about finding out about new free patterns but i have to follow you on Facebook. Because of previous employment it is NOT a safe thing for me. Could i just be on a list where they could be sent to my email? Thankyou soo much
        I just love your pattern

        1. Hi Lynn! You can definitely be on a list to get my patterns/posts via email only. I have that pop up box for Facebook because a lot of people don’t see the newsletter subscription sign up off to the side of my site. It is easy for people to just follow Facebook, but the most reliable way to get my posts is through subscribing over email. I’ll sign you up, and you will get an email that you will have to confirm you want it. I will do the newsletter and the blog for you, and just confirm either or both if you want them. Also, if that pop up box is bothersome, you should be able to click the x and close it so it won’t come up. Thanks, and I’m so happy you like my patterns.

  13. Thank you so very much for sharing Jessica! These are beautiful. I’m giving my 1st Baby Shower ever and was trying to think of a special Thank- you gift and you hit the nail on the head. I’m sure all the ladies (and men) will love receiving a sachet. I think I’ll make extras for myself, my daughter and soon-to-be grandson. God’s blessings to you and your family.

    1. Hi Reynetta,
      That is such a special gift to make for a baby shower. Those are some lucky folks who will be getting invites. I had never thought to make them as baby shower thank you gifts, but they would be so perfect. Thanks so much for sharing, and blessings to you too. Good luck with throwing you first shower!

  14. Oh. My. Word,… these are so lovely and the tutorial is soooo well written! Cannot wait to make a plethora for Christmas gifts!!!!

  15. How about using small organza drawstring bags … these are so easy to refill and make the item show off its quality. Plus you can see the bag and filling through the sides. I love making pots and bowls in crochet. Thanks for this pattern.

  16. It would be nice to have ad free pattern section or a PDF available.

    Love the patterns

  17. My sister just moved and I have been looking for a cute little ‘new home’ gift. This is perfect. I will be making her several. Thanks!
