Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “Inspired to translate the colors and pattern of vintage fabric acquired on a trip to France, Leigh Radford designed these lavender-filled sachets and drawstring bag. The stripe, mosaic, and textured patterns complement each other beautifully while gently perfuming your drawers with lavender. The bag features ready-made upholstery pulls for drawstrings, but twisted cords (made from the yarn) can be substituted, if preferred.”
