Lavender ball

Circles of lavender-coloured linen were sewn together, gathering as the sewing went along, and then filled with dried lavender and sewn shut. 
The ball was fairly solidly stuffed with lavender but had to be massaged into shape as the wrapping went on -
Boring beige ... with a lovely smell -
It took less than an hour to make.

Umpteen years ago, I started wrapping a canning jar. I was thinking about it earlier today, and now that I've come here and seen this, I'll definitely get it out and wrap some more.
