I love the look of gorgeous vintage French grain sacks, but could never cut into one. So I recreated the look, which can be used in any number of ways!
Get the full DIY Tutorial HERE!
  • french grain sack inspired repurposed sachets
To recreate a French grain sack, I needed the right fabric. And I found it in the linens section of the thrift store with a lonely, beige curtain.
  • french grain sack inspired repurposed sachets
I wanted to recreate both the classic striped grain sack look, AND the faded print/script look. So I did so using painter's tape, rubber stamps, and a secret ingredient that is discussed here!
  • french grain sack inspired repurposed sachets
Once everything was set, it was time to turn my fabric into sachets! So I sewed two squares together, leaving a healthy margin and a small, one inch opening on one of the sides.

Through that opening, I added lots and lots of organic dried lavender! Mmmm, can you smell its fragrance through the computer? I wish you could because it smells amazing!!
  • french grain sack inspired repurposed sachets
After I added enough lavender to each sachet, I closed up the opening and then pinked the raw edges, all the way around. Don't they look lovely? Just like French grain sacks. Best part- you can recreate this look on ANYTHING...dish towels, placemats, napkins, etc.

Materials I used for this project:

  • Curtain   (Thrift Store)
  • Sewing Machine   (Craft Store)
  • Lavender   (Online)

    Really really cool idea! I'll have to remember this for Christmas season as I like to make gifts for family/friends rather than spend a ton of money in stores.
