These Felt Bookmarks will be the envy of classmates this school year. Not only do they hold a pen or two, they are banded bookmarks that never fall out of your book or planner. They're fantastic for students who never want to lose a pen. Attach one to a planner to keep the day's place. See how simple it is to make these felt bookmarks below.

My kids always manage to lose a pen here and there. But, I'm here to change that this school year with these nifty (banded) pen-holder felt bookmarks. They are a beginner-level sewing project that can be created in less than 10 minutes. This also makes these a great back-to-school gift idea for teachers, too. See how to create these nifty felt bookmarks below.

55 Lavender Crafts and Recipes

We're rounding out our week with 55 Lavender Crafts and Recipes from all of my blogger friends (and a few from my own collection). From salt scrubs to cookies to actual lavender crafts, there is such a fun variety of goodies below. I'm amazed at how much you can do with this powerful (albeit relaxing) flower. See all of these 55 Lavender Crafts and Recipes below.

Lavender Crafts and Recipes
What a fun week it's been, with lavender at the center of everything. I started thinking it would be a neat idea to wrap the week up with a big collection of lavender posts from all over the web. There are so many things in this list that I can't wait to try (lavender scones, anyone?). You'll love it all. And it's not all essential oils, either! Some of these lavender crafts and recipes call for dried and even fresh lavender.

I used my mother's old pattern for a Barbie Doll pillow case (that I found scratched onto an old legal pad in her sewing desk) and turned it into these divine smelling drawer sachets...filled up with dried lavender. Poor Barbie just got ol' fiber fill in her pillows..she didn't know what she was missing.

Today, I'm sharing my secret for the thriftiest luxury I fully take advantage of on the regular: my recipe for French Lavender Linen Spray (applied to freshly ironed sheets). It is truly luxurious for just a couple of bucks. And not only do I use my lavender linen spray on my bedding, I actually use it on towels, upholstered furniture, and draperies, too. It smells heavenly and is one of my favorite DIY concoctions to mix up every week.

These Lavender and Lace printables are simple, but lovely in their own way. There are no words on these, so the lavender kind of stands on its own. But with all of the calming properties of lavender, maybe just gazing at these will be relaxing (one can hope, right?). There are two designs of these Lavender and Lace printables available below. Each design is available in multiple sizes.

This entire week is devoted to my favorite herb: lavender! Okay, so technically it's a flowering shrub, not an actual herb, but I kind of use it in an herbal manner myself, so that's what I'm going with. When thinking through all of the lavender fun for the week, I knew I'd want to kick it off with printables (I'll be ending the week that way, as well). Download your favorite version (or both) of these lavender and lace designs below.
