Homemade Holiday Gifts: Yogi Eye Pillows

Posted on December 22nd, 2011 by Tonia 2 Comments

We’re down to the wire, folks! Christmas is right around the corner. If you’re still struggling to think of a good gift for a friend or relative, here’s another quick and simple project that you can accomplish in about a half hour and will delight your yoga-practicing pals {or anyone who enjoys some quiet time to themselves in the bath, in bed, or in the hammock once in a while}: eye pillows!

My mom is a yoga instructor and she made an eye pillow for each of her students a couple years ago. She used a beautiful silky fabric that was just heavenly. This project uses very little fabric, so it’s a perfect way to use up scraps or maybe re-purpose an old shirt {soft, worn-in fabric would feel so lovely over the eyes.}

I found two great tutorials. The first one is very simple and the second one is a bit more complicated. Personally, I am a little sensitive to lavender, so I will be filling mine with other lovely scents. It’s a highly personalize-able project, which makes it really fun. Have at it!
