Crafty Update: Lavender Dryer Sachets

This past Christmas, one of the handmade gifts I distributed was a set of lavender dryer sachets. Basically, they’re little pillows stuffed with dried lavender that you throw into your clothes dryer instead of using commercial dryer sheets, which are made with all kinds of gross (and harmful) petroleum based chemicals and animal fats. These are better for people and better for the environment, and they last a really long time and make your clothes smell of sweet, herbal lavender. They were such a big hit, I got orders from people who weren’t lucky enough to receive them as gifts but saw someone else receive them. So, I figured I better start selling them! Now available at Dote Handmade Goods. $15 for a set of three or get a sample and try one out for $5 (plus shipping).

Crafty Update: Patchwork Panel Pants

My friend Jenny says I should post more stuff about my craft projects, since my blog is called “She’s Crafty.” The problem is that I always forget to take pictures of my projects. Since she made that comment, I’ve been trying to become more diligent about it. These are some slightly ill-fitting (though for $3.50, ill-fitting can be worked with) Goodwill  jeans I altered for her by sewing patchwork panels down the sides. This can also be done with corduroys, chinos, and what have you. Also, skirts. If anyone wants some, let me know. As I always tell Jenny, I enjoy being needed and sharing my crafty skillz, and I am fine with being paid in beer and/or Mexican food. (And so on.)
