Some Luxury Sewing

I finally remembered to get pre-earthquake photos off my camera, so can finally show you the sewing I was doing just a day or two before! This heavy eyemask and neck pillow were soooooo easy to make (less than an hour of sewing) and turned out sooo well. They were for a friends 21st but I'm thinking I might have to make a set for myself, especially considering the whole lot cost less than $5 NZ.

Inspiration came from here and the pattern for the neck pillow from here. The eyemask was my own pattern, basically two rectangles of fabric with a band of elastic sewn in to go around the back of the head. Both are just one layer of satin type fabric filled with plain long grain rice that I mixed with a few drops of lavender fragrant oil and let dry (remember to stir often so rice doesn't clump). 

A quick project that's pretty, functional and oh so comfortable. Even better, someone who wants to put in more effort and has perhaps better sewing skills than I would find this one easy to dress up. 

That's all for now,
