Ahhh Sleep!! One of the most wonderful things in the world....except how many nights do we spend tossing and turning only to get up multiple times for babies, the dog barking, the windows are open and it starts to rain... Sleep is a precious thing to everyone and most of us don't get enough of it. Here is my answer. Introducing the new EYE PAD. No monthly payment plans, no special case for it to go in, no apps or downloads, just a simple pattern and you are in dreamland!
9" X 4" piece of front fabric or letters that are sewn together with a
border to create a 9" X 4" piece for the front
9" X 4" piece of thin batting
9" X 4" piece of fussy fabric
1 1/8" bias strip for binding 18" long
1/2" wide elastic (enough to wrap around the back of the head from eye to eye
Trace the Eye Pad template onto the front fabric.
Layer the front, batting and backing fabric. Sew along the traced line.
Cut through all layers very close to the stitched line.
Sew on elastic to either side of the back of the Eye Pad, be sure it is not twisted.
Sew on the binding to the back of the Eye Pad around the outer edges with a 1/8" seam.
Fold the binding over and under to the front and sew it close to the edge with matching thread.
NOTE: The template should measure 7 3/4" X 3 5/8" for sizing.
