Relaxing Eye Pillow


This relaxing eye pillow takes minutes to make and is a luscious treat for tired eyes. This little baby goes in the fridge as well, so it will be chilly to the touch. After a hard day at work or working on the lawn, lie down and plop it over your eyes for ultimate relaxation.

2 pieces of cotton fabric, each 6 by 3 inches
Straight pins
Pinking shears
Sewing machine or needle and thread (If you don’t want to sew, you can always use Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Tape.
1 cup of rice
Essential oil (if desired)

Directions: Line up the two pieces of fabric, right side out, and pin around three sides. Sew with straight stitch around the three sides, removing pins as you go. Pour in rice and sew up the top. Sew another seam around the whole mask. Use the pinking shears to trim the excess fabric around the edges. Store mask in freezer or fridge.

Variation: When adding rice, add one to two drops of essential oil. Experiment with different fabrics such as satin or ultra suede, to see which you like best. Make several bags so you can rotate them.
