White Chocolate Bunny Easter Arrangement For Your Table

DIY: Reusable AND Refillable Dryer Sachets

DIY reusable AND refillable herbal dryer sachets from katienormalgirl.com | #DIY #natural #home

It’s time to ditch your dryer sheets and embrace the latest trend in simple, sustainable living…dryer sachets!  These chemical-free, all-natural alternative to dryer sheets have been growing in popularity, and this week I’m going to show you how to make your own dryer sachet, that is both reusable and refillable.

Often dryer sachets are sewn shut on all sides and are not refillable without some difficulty and it’s this ability to refill them, that makes this project unique.

These dryer sachets are an easy-sew project, perfect for beginners and can be done by hand or using a sewing machine. It’s also a great opportunity to upcycle old t-shirts, or use up old scraps of fabric from other projects.

I like to take some time on a Sunday afternoon to make a batch of these that can be kept in a basket next to my dryer. As you’re making them for yourself, remember that they also make great housewarming gifts, teacher presents or can be a unique addition to a baby shower gift basket.DIY reusable AND refillable herbal dryer sachets from katienormalgirl.com | #DIY #natural #home

Tools & Materials Needed:

  • Iron and firm surface to iron on
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape or quilter’s square
  • Sewing machine or needle (if sewing by hand)
  • 4 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ piece of fabric (cotton or linen) and coordinating thread
  • 4″ strip of industrial strength or decor velcro*

*Make sure you are using industrial strength or decor grade velcro for this project. It has double-sided “teeth” that are strong enough to stay closed while tumbling around in the dryer. It can be sew-on or stick-on, for added security, you’ll want to sew it into the sachet, either way. Continue Reading →
