A bit of craft

I made some of these little lavender-filled strawberries for a charity lunch and they were very popular. The original pattern came from Selvedge magazine, (issue No 31, Nov/Dec 2009)but I've seen a variation in Mollie Makes magazine (issue No 2, June 2011) and also in Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts, although these latter are designed as pincushions. I filled mine with home-grown lavender from the large bush in my front garden. The lavender bush also supplies the wherwithal to make these lavender pottles, which I tuck into drawers to help scent the contents and protect against the increasingly voracious clothes-moths.
