I was wanting to add something to a charity Christmas hamper and came up with idea of eye pillows.
The fabric I used was scraps from when I made the Ipad rests
Here’s the basic way that I did it
- Cut 2 fabric rectangles 3.5″ x 7.5″
- Right sides together sew all around leaving a gap
- Clip corners and turn right way out
- Fill with rice.
- Add 2 teaspoons of dried lavender or the contents of a herbal teabag
- Slip stitch closed
Don’t over fill the pillow with too much rice. You want it to be very floppy so that its not too heavy on the eyes and moulds around the face.
As these are just mini heat packs you can treat them the same and put them in the microwave or pop them in the freezer as soothing eye pillows.
