Scented Bra Pouch

This project is a great way to recycle old bras. I made this one for my mother who had a mastectomy and no longer needs hers. She places it in her clothes drawer for a lovely scent.

Scented Bra Pouch

What you need

Recycled Bra
1 cup of Dried Lavender
Backing fabric any color
hot glue or craft glue


Lace bras work best for this to allow the scent to flow through.

Take your bra and cut some fabric pieces to sit at the back of the bra cup.




Fill the bra cup with lavender sprigs and then glue the fabric backing onto the cups to close it up.



Make sure it is well glued down or the lavender may slip out.

You could finish it off further by laying some ribbon over the edges and just jazzing it up a little more with optional embellishments.

To use just pop it into your drawer or into a closet.

    Personally, as a breast cancer survivor who had a bilateral mastectomy, I would be OFFENDED by this! Why? Because I don’t want a constant reminder of what I’ve lost. This would only remind me that I cannot wear them any longer!
