  2. Fold the handkerchief (or material of your choice) in half, right sides together, and sew up two adjacent sides (leaving one short side open), as if you were making a little pillowcase.
  3. Turn it right side out, fill it with dried lavender to within two inches of the top, and tie it tightly with a brightly colored ribbon.
