I have made these eye masks for my friends that have just had their first baby. I have filled them with dried lavendar and hops to help them sleep during the day when baby sleeps.
I made little organza pockets and filled them with the lavender and hops then stuffed them into each side of the mask and padded with a small amount of stuffing.
Also I added a layer of leather to the white/blue one so that it would completely black out the light.
Also I left the straps as tie straps rather than elasticated so they were fully adjustable without adding pressure.
All material from Leson’s fabric chortlon, manchester UK
Lavender/Hop from http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/The-Spiceworks__W0QQ_armrsZ1
