How to Make Aromatic Eye Pillow : DIY

1
00:00:05,210 –> 00:00:08,130
hey everyone one of my friends is going

2
00:00:08,130 –> 00:00:11,040
to be having a baby any day now in fact

3
00:00:11,040 –> 00:00:12,840
by the time this video goes up she very

4
00:00:12,840 –> 00:00:14,250
well may have already had the baby

5
00:00:14,250 –> 00:00:16,440
anyway she made herself with soothing

6
00:00:16,440 –> 00:00:18,600
eye pillow filled with rice mixed with

7
00:00:18,600 –> 00:00:21,689
essential oils to use while she’s giving

8
00:00:21,689 –> 00:00:24,449
birth to help relax her and while it’s

9
00:00:24,449 –> 00:00:27,000
nothing anywhere near that I have been a

10
00:00:27,000 –> 00:00:29,189
little bit stressed recently and I

11
00:00:29,189 –> 00:00:30,840
figured it would be kind of nice to make

12
00:00:30,840 –> 00:00:32,668
one of these two these are pretty easy

13
00:00:32,668 –> 00:00:35,730
so let’s get started you’ll need some

14
00:00:35,730 –> 00:00:38,250
fabric about half a cup of rice

15
00:00:38,250 –> 00:00:40,710
essential oil lavender is probably the

16
00:00:40,710 –> 00:00:44,149
best one to use pins sandwich baggie

17
00:00:44,149 –> 00:00:46,950
pour the rice into the baggie and drop a

18
00:00:46,950 –> 00:00:49,530
few drops of essential oil into the rice

19
00:00:49,530 –> 00:00:52,590
the man you use is totally dependent on

20
00:00:52,590 –> 00:00:55,140
how strong you want it to be I found one

21
00:00:55,140 –> 00:00:57,840
to two drops to be enough alternatively

22
00:00:57,840 –> 00:01:00,030
if you have dried lavender you could

23
00:01:00,030 –> 00:01:02,010
totally just throw in about a tablespoon

24
00:01:02,010 –> 00:01:06,439
of those instead of using essential oil

25
00:01:10,850 –> 00:01:13,920
cut two pieces of fabric three and a

26
00:01:13,920 –> 00:01:17,490
half by six and a half inches pin it

27
00:01:17,490 –> 00:01:20,070
together right sides touching and sew

28
00:01:20,070 –> 00:01:23,610
along these three sides flip it right

29
00:01:23,610 –> 00:01:27,479
sides out and fill it up with the rice I

30
00:01:27,479 –> 00:01:29,729
thought that snipping the corner of the

31
00:01:29,729 –> 00:01:32,040
sandwich baggie would make it easier to

32
00:01:32,040 –> 00:01:34,140
pour the rice into the pillow I don’t

33
00:01:34,140 –> 00:01:36,869
know how well that worked I spilled a

34
00:01:36,869 –> 00:01:39,150
little bit but it wasn’t that bad you

35
00:01:39,150 –> 00:01:41,100
could use the funnel or make a makeshift

36
00:01:41,100 –> 00:01:42,869
one by rolling a piece of paper up into

37
00:01:42,869 –> 00:01:46,280
a cone if you’d rather do that instead

38
00:01:46,280 –> 00:01:48,780
squish the rice down as much as you can

39
00:01:48,780 –> 00:01:51,479
and stick a few pins in to hold it in

40
00:01:51,479 –> 00:01:57,390
place at the open edge fold about 1/4 of

41
00:01:57,390 –> 00:02:00,890
an inch in and pin close

42
00:02:03,600 –> 00:02:07,870
and then sew it up if you want a more

43
00:02:07,870 –> 00:02:10,869
finished edge you can hand sew it but I

44
00:02:10,869 –> 00:02:13,180
didn’t really care so I just machine sew

45
00:02:13,180 –> 00:02:14,860
did this might not look like a lot of

46
00:02:14,860 –> 00:02:16,690
rice but you don’t want it to be

47
00:02:16,690 –> 00:02:18,910
jam-packed and totally full or else it’s

48
00:02:18,910 –> 00:02:22,150
just gonna sit on your face like a hard

49
00:02:22,150 –> 00:02:24,250
sack of rice you want it to be able to

50
00:02:24,250 –> 00:02:27,340
kind of like droop and fall into place

51
00:02:27,340 –> 00:02:29,830
if that makes sense you can stop here if

52
00:02:29,830 –> 00:02:31,209
you want or you can make a little

53
00:02:31,209 –> 00:02:34,090
pillowcase for it to do this cut a piece

54
00:02:34,090 –> 00:02:37,630
of fabric 3 and 3/4 inch by 15 and a

55
00:02:37,630 –> 00:02:40,600
half inches on one side fold over 1/4 of

56
00:02:40,600 –> 00:02:42,760
an inch and fold over again 1/4 of an

57
00:02:42,760 –> 00:02:50,830
inch pin down and sew up that hem repeat

58
00:02:50,830 –> 00:02:55,540
on the other side lay the fabric down

59
00:02:55,540 –> 00:02:58,090
right side facing up and lay the

60
00:02:58,090 –> 00:02:59,890
finished eye pillow in the middle right

61
00:02:59,890 –> 00:03:02,830
above it fold the fabric in on each side

62
00:03:02,830 –> 00:03:06,010
or the pillow ends it should overlap a

63
00:03:06,010 –> 00:03:08,590
little bit like so pin the edges down

64
00:03:08,590 –> 00:03:11,430
and sew them up

65
00:03:17,520 –> 00:03:19,870
flip inside out and then you can put the

66
00:03:19,870 –> 00:03:22,680
eye pillow inside

67
00:03:39,700 –> 00:03:41,989
having a pillowcase on this is nice

68
00:03:41,989 –> 00:03:44,690
because you can take it off and wash it

69
00:03:44,690 –> 00:03:46,790
you can have a few different ones and

70
00:03:46,790 –> 00:03:48,230
swap them out and depending on your mood

71
00:03:48,230 –> 00:03:51,620
and if the essential oil smell feeds you

72
00:03:51,620 –> 00:03:53,870
can spray or drop a little bit on to the

73
00:03:53,870 –> 00:03:56,030
inner pillow and then stuff it back into

74
00:03:56,030 –> 00:03:57,709
the pillowcase and not have to worry

75
00:03:57,709 –> 00:04:01,790
about any possible skin irritation once

76
00:04:01,790 –> 00:04:03,920
you’re done you can use it as is or you

77
00:04:03,920 –> 00:04:05,360
can throw it into the fridge or freezer

78
00:04:05,360 –> 00:04:07,489
for a little bit to make it nice and

79
00:04:07,489 –> 00:04:09,830
cold or you can pop it in the microwave

80
00:04:09,830 –> 00:04:12,530
at 10-second intervals about two or

81
00:04:12,530 –> 00:04:15,799
three times to warm it up and here’s an

82
00:04:15,799 –> 00:04:17,630
extra pillowcase that I made with faux

83
00:04:17,630 –> 00:04:19,870
fur

84
00:04:26,330 –> 00:04:29,430
and now it’s time to go relax
