Hi, I'm Linda Facci of Facci Designs. And today, we're going to do a DIY herbal eye pillow. Eye pillows are great to block out light and they're very soothing and relaxing. The weight of them feels so good against your eyes and they're so easy to make. You'll want to choose a fabric that's soft against your skin, a satin, a silk, felt, cotton. Today, I'm using a felt on one side and satin on the other. No one says you have to have the same thing on both sides. So, we're going to do an herbal eye pillow. And lots of eye pillows are filled with lavender and flax seeds. But today, we're going to mix up some herbs. So, here I have a mixture o some lavender, some peppermint and chamomile. So, I've mixed those altogether in this bowl. Then, we're going to take our fabric and put both of the right sides together, we'll pin that. Now, you want to make this about nine inches by four or eight by three and a half, you know, depending on how large you want it. So, we'll pin that and we're going to sew along three sides of this fabric, leaving one side open, the short side open. So, we'll sew that, then we're going to turn it inside-out, fill it with our herbal mixture. And then, neatly close the one end and sew that shut. And I thought it'd kind of fun to cut these little felt eyelashes out and glue them to the felt piece. So, you would take a piece of black felt, cut it out in a rectangle shape and then, give it a fringe on one side. And then, you can just sew that to your pink felt or hot glue it. And there you have an eye pillow made out of herbs. This is Linda Facci of Facci Designs, thanks, bye-bye.
