Hello! A relative from my husband's side of the family had surgery recently. Her husband said she's recovering well, but of course needs a lot of rest during the healing process. To that end, I decided to make a relaxation eye bag to send to her.
It's a very easy project; I was able to select the fabric, cut it out and do the machine sewing part while I was waiting for a pot of coffee to brew. Really! Here's how it turned out:
It's filled with a mixture of flaxseed and dried lavender; I also added a few drops of lavender essential oil just to boost the scent a little.

I made a get-well card to go along with the eye bag:
Very simple - I just glued some vintage crocheted flowers to some card stock, added some felt leaves, glued vintage buttons to the flower centers, then stamped "get well". Of course, it helped that I happened to have such nice vintage items on hand.
Hmmm...I am in need of a nap - maybe I should make myself a relaxation eye bag!
