To make Up:
Fold the bag so that the cast on and cast off edges are at the top. Sew up the sides of the bag add lavender seeds and sew across the top. Securely attach two handles to each side of the bag.  If your knitting is very loose or the lavender seeds particularly small it is worth considering sewing the seeds in a muslin pouch or tying then into an old clean pop sock to prevent seeds from escaping from the bag.
