Scented Eye Pillow

Lavender-filled pillows are easy to sew, and can be used to soothe tired eyes or freshen clothing.

To make one eye pillow, you'll need to make two cases--one from muslin to hold the rice, lentils, and lavender mix and a second decorative case to enclose the muslin pillow. To start, cut decorative fabric into a 5x18-inch strip; fold in half with right sides together and iron. Cut muslin fabric into a strip 4-1/2x17-1/2 strip; fold in half with right sides together and iron. Stitch around open sides of each folded rectangle, using a 1/4-inch seam allowance and leaving a 1-1/2-inch opening. Snip corners; turn right side out and press. Mix 1-1/2 cups of a rice-and-lentils mixture with 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lavender in a bowl, adding a few drops of lavender essential oil. Adjust the amount of lavender and lavender oil according to the fragrance desired. Using a funnel, pour the filling into the opening of the muslin pillow until the pillow is just over half full. Sew the opening closed. Insert the muslin bag in the decorative fabric case; sew opening closed.
