Eye Pillow Tutorial

I recently stumbled upon this Eye Pillow Tutorial! I made one for my mother and she loves it! This is how easy it is to make for yourself.
1.) Fist print the Eye Pillow template and trace around the shape.

2.) Then sew around the eye pillow, leaving an opening at the top.

3.) Trim around the eye pillow shape. 
4.) Flip the eye pillow right side out and fill it with spilt peas, flax, or rice using a funnel. 


5.) Then add lavender or another herb that smells wonderful! Make sure that you do not over fill the pillow. Hand sew the opening at the top. 
Ta Da! You have an eye pillow that you can heat in the microwave for 45 seconds and drape over your eyes (or neck) and relax!!!! All of your worries and headache will fade away! 
Happy Sewing!

Leah,

I make a very similar eye pillow and
I keep it in a plastic baggie in the freezer. Wonderful for puffy tired eyes. Try it!

What a great tutorial. I have an eye pillow that I purchased many years ago for a yoga class. It's made of shiny silk. The silk offers a cooling feeling when it's first placed over the eyes.
