Winter is coming which means plenty of sweater weather. Who loves sweaters as much as knitters? Moths! These pesky bugs can do a lot of damage to our precious wool sweaters and yarn stash. This easy tutorial will show you how to make cedar satchels to deter moths from munching on your wool. They also make a great holiday gift.

Misc. Crafts




To save time cut a 5” x 7” template from a cereal box.

Cut out rectangles using tulle fabric.

Tulle fabric is like mesh but is softer and has smaller holes than mesh fabric.

Fold the rectangle over longwise and pin into place.

Since tulle is a light fabric with holes, use a shorter stitch when sewing sides together.

Sew a seam along one end and side.

Turn right side out and fill with cedar shavings. This can get messy so I did this over the remains of my cereal box.

Fill the satchel about ¾ full so there is enough fabric at the top to tie off with yarn.

Cut a 7” piece of yarn and tie off the satchel end with a bow.

Shake your satchels to make sure any tiny shavings fall out now before putting them in your dresser.

Make as many satchels as you like. Then tuck them among your sweaters or wool stash.

Craft on!
