How to make a very easy lavender sash in less than 5 minutes!

I love my Husbando.  But he is a triathlete and his laundry STINKS.  Like sweating for four hours stinky.  Since I am in charge of the laundry, I only use fragrance free detergent and static sheets.  This causes a problems with some of the padded spandex and/or running ensembles that just don't smell clean post washing.  Enter the organic lavender sash.  I throw one in his wash and the same on in the dryer.  The whole laundry load doesn't smell like lavender when you take it out but the manly funk is for sure gone.

Start with a scrap piece of fabric.  They don't need to be large.  This is probably a three inch by six inch piece.  It doesn't need to be ironed since it will be thrown into the laundry.

 Fold it in half and sew the two seams on either side of the fold.
 Turn the sash so that the seams are now on the inside.
 Grab your pound of dried lavender you have laying around your kitchen.  Oh--you don't have any?  I recommend Save-On-Crafts.  They are local (to Northern California) and their shipping is super fast.  I purchased 2 lbs of dried lavender about 5 years ago and still have this pound left that I use for soap making.  Every house should have some!!!!!!
 Pour that dried lavender about 3/4 of the way into filling the sash.
 Hellllllllo lavender!
 Fold the raw edges in.
 Sew that top seam.  And voila!  You have a lavender sash perfect for laundry!  You can also stick it in your undies drawer or closet.
 Here's another view.  It's a great thing to make for holiday presents or birthdays to stick in a present bag or stocking stuffer.
