Once you have knitted up two of your heart shapes, to make up the front and back of your sachet, simply tack them together with the right side of your pieces facing together with yarn using your tapestry needle. Turn them inside out. Then fill them up with your either loose lavender, stuffing, or bits of yarn, and close them up.
