So you have seen all my new eye pillows and neck wraps!!! Do you want to make your own this weekend!?!
|Cut fabric into a 9 inch by 5 inch piece.|
|Pin your top fabric to your bottom fabric, right sides together.|
|Sew a half inch seam around the eye pillow except for a two inch opening. This will be where you turn your eye pillow right side out.|
|Before you turn your eye pillow right side out, cut off excess fabric.|
|Flip eye pillow right side out though opening.|
|I totally forgot what this thing is called. It’s used to push your corners out and make them all pretty. You can use anything pointy, but be careful not to push all the way though.|
|Once you turn right side out, iron flat. You don’t have to do this, but I always topstitch to give it a more completed professional look. Topstitch all the way around except at the opening.|
|You will need 1 cup of rice and 2 tablespoons of dried lavender per eye pillow. I get my lavender at Earth Fare or any whole foods store. If you do not have a funnel, make one out of construction paper. Using your funnel, add the rice and lavender mixture to the eye pillow though the opening. Sew up the opening and you are done!|
|Use at room temperature or from the freezer to sooth irritated eyes. Heat in the microwave to melt away tension headaches. For neck wraps cut a piece of fabric 27 inches by 5 inches. Use 3.5 cups of rice and 3.5 tablespoons of lavender!! And if you don’t want to make your own, I’ve gotta covered here!!!
Enjoy! and Happy Friday xoxoxo Angela
