Sweet Dreams

Ron travels way more than the average person. This year alone he's gone to India four times, with detours to Japan, Switzerland and Austria. While jet-setting is in his blood, recovering from jet lag is a drag. For his last trip I made him an eye pillow out of Liberty of London's Grey Susanna print. I filled it with lavender for it's relaxing aromatherapy powers and added flax seed for weight. So simple!

After using a plastic bag to tote his eye pillow around, I had the idea to make a carrying case for it. Not only does it protect the surface from dust and dirt but also helps preserve the dreamy lavender scent.


  1. Im the luckiest guy ever. I'm telling you, when I couldn't sleep, cranky, annoyed... this eye pillow lulled me into a lavender field and straight to dreamland. Like Kristen said, you gotta make more! :)

  2. The fabric you chose is so beautiful! One nice thing about making eye pillows it doesn't need much yardage. I think I'll need a new one soon. tee-hee!

  3. I LOVE the idea of a protective cover. That's one thing that always bothered me about my eye pillow - that it could get all dusty and dirty and then I'm putting it on my eyes. What a good idea! I love the fabric too.
